Ome Banjos


Ome Tupelo 5-String Banjo

The Ome Tupelo has a very authentic old time banjo tone with a very woody tone. It features a  17 fret S-scoped fingerboard. The 2-ply solid maple rim is 9/16” thick and is capped with black ebonite and bound with simulated tortoise shell. The Ome 12” maple Tone Rim construction combined with fewer brackets and wood rim-rod produce Ome's “woodiest” old-time banjo tone. The Tupelo is made with the same care and precision as other Ome instruments and comes complete with their deluxe hardshell case and Limited Lifetime Warranty.

They had the banjo I was looking for. They offered no problem financing. Banjo shipped immediately arrived on time and in perfect condition. I couldn't be happier.
