The Pisgah Walnut Rambler Dobson banjos have been one of our best selling open back banjos since we first took them on in early 2016. This Walnut Rambler with a Dobson tone ring is a smaller A-scale version of that banjo.
Standard tuning for a 5-string banjo is an open G, so they would be thought to be a G scale instrument. The A-scale banjo is smaller and is tune to open A. This makes it great to play fiddle tunes as the majority of fiddle tunes are either in A or Double D tuning.
The smaller size also makes it a great banjo for players who have smaller hands and find it difficult to reach to the frets. It also makes a great travel banjo as it will easily fit in an overhead compartment on an airplane.
Features an 11" rim, Dobson tone ring, renaissance head, and a scooped fingerboard.
