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 and features the upgraded brass shell on the pot. This brass shell and all of the hardware has an antique brass finish on it.
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.
