The Ome Bright Angel 5 string openback banjo is a beautiful banjo in tone and looks. The Bright Angel features the Ome Vintage machined brass tone ring. This is the same tone ring that is featured on the Ome North Star and Ome Mira models.
The Bright Angel has scale length is 26.25" and is longer than the Ome North Star and Ome Mira banjos which both have a scale length of 25.5". This longer scale length gives the banjo a clearer treble and louder bass than both the North Star and the Mira.
The Ome Bright Angel banjo also features solid brass double rim rod construction.
