Similar to the Rambler Dobson but with a few upgrades. Available in walnut or cherry, this banjo comes with an aged copper or brass rim in 11" or 12". The softer metal gives this banjo a little warmer tone while maintaining sustain and projection. Another upgrade to this banjo is the Pisgah Hawktail tailpiece. This allows for more downward pressure on the bridge so that there is better clarity on each note.
