Ome Tupelo 5-String Banjo

1 item left

The Ome Tupelo has a very authentic old time banjo tone with a very woody tone. It features a shorter 25.5” scale, wider 1.34” nut width, and 17 fret S-scoped fingerboard. The 2-ply solid maple rim is 9/16” thick and is capped with black ebonite and bound with simulated tortoise shell. The Ome 12” maple Tone Rim construction combined with less brackets and wood rim-rod produce our “woodiest” Old-time banjo tone. The Tupelo is made with the same care and precision as other Ome instruments and comes complete with their deluxe hardshell case and Limited Lifetime Warranty.
