Ome North Star 5 String Banjo w/ Megatone Tone Ring

2 reviews

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.

    Great banjo

    A massive step up from my starter banjo, and the difference is night and day. Checks all the boxes for sound and playability, and really impressed with the quality of the build.
