Experience the timeless charm of openback 5-string banjos, renowned for their distinct, mellower sound compared to resonator banjos. Unlike their resonator counterparts, openback banjos channel much of their acoustic richness into the player's body, creating a darker, more mellow tone that is right in line with the heart of traditional Appalachian music.
Crafted for enthusiasts of clawhammer and frailing styles, these banjos are perfect for those who love old-time Appalachian music. The openback design invites you to journey back in time, reviving the musical heritage of the region.
Not only do openback banjos produce a darker tone, but they also offer a featherweight advantage. Lacking the heavy metal flange that secures resonators, they are notably lighter.
