Ome North Star 5 String Banjo w/ Megatone Tone Ring
This is a great bluegrass banjo by the Ome banjo company who is located in Boulder, Colorado. Often we have openback Ome North Star banjos in stock, but this is a unique one as it has a bluegrass banjo setup. It features a resonator and an Ome Megatone 400 tone ring which gives it a great bluegrass tone that is versatile to play many other 3 finger styles of banjo.
The neck and resonator are made of some beautiful curly maple wood.
