An incredibly clear, crisp, and full sounding banjo - and it doesn't feature a tone ring! The white oak rim matched with the white oak neck and resonator sound great together. Without the tone ring, this banjo is very lightweight. Your back will thank you if nothing else!
The bluegrass inspired White Lotus banjo, named for its lotus flower inspired inlay pattern, is centered around the patent pending white oak rim. The wood, notably lacking a traditional heavy tone ring, closely recreates a bright, crisp bluegrass punch, ushering in a new era in playing comfort and sound for today’s banjo player.

I received my new Deering White Lotus quickly, and when it arrived without the expected spikes, Banjo Studio paid for me to have them installed. Communications were friendly and prompt, and I appreciate Banjo Studio standing by their sale. I will happily do business with them again!
