The Vega Senator 5 string banjo features a spun brass tone ring and is ideal for Old Time, Folk, Civil War music, and more. Made by the Deering Banjo Company, over 100 years of Vega tradition and uses Deering's innovative approach to banjo crafting to create the Vega Senator model. The spun brass tone ring gives it a bright yet warm tone.
The Vega Senator has the time honored vintage Vega peghead profile, and a rich warm brown stained maple neck with adjustable truss rod and a 3-ply rim with dual coordinator rods. The hard, dense, naturally beautiful ebony fingerboard is inlaid with pearl dots, and a Vega star at the fifth fret. The Vega Senator has the ease of playability that all Deering banjos are noted for, and the light weight desired by many banjo players without sacrificing sound quality and sustain.
