Vega Senator 6-String Banjo

1 review
  • The Vega Senator 6-string banjo is light weight and tuned like a guitar. It is great for acoustic blues and traditional jazz. This 6 string banjo is a great sounding light weight openback banjo. It that plays beautifully and gives a rich warm banjo sound reminiscent of the 6-string banjos of the early 1900's but with a much better intonation and improved tone. It has clear and elegant banjo tone with bass notes that are full and round. It's a pure delight for the guitarist as an easy instrument that is similar in weight to a guitar, fingered the same as a guitar and is compatible as a second instrument for those special songs that come alive with the smile and sparkle of a banjo tone.

    This open back Vega Senator 6-string banjo has the ease of playability that all Deering banjos are noted for, and the light weight desired by many banjo players without sacrificing sound quality and sustain.

    First, the banjo. Very well

    First, the banjo. Very well made, plays easily and sounds great (and looks great). Better in every way than the overseas ones (though those are good, especially for the money). I love being able to play "guitar stuff" and get a an old-timey banjo sound. Next, Banjo Studio. David, the owner, is very knowledgeable, he has the "good stuff" in stock and the prices are right. Communication was never a problem. I would definitely do business with Banjo Studio again
