The OB-250 has been redesigned! A classic reproduction of the most famous flathead bluegrass banjo with astonishing tone and playability. Gold Tone has even added extra features such as an ebony fingerboard, maple neck (instead of softer mahogany), and a flamed maple resonator. The pot construction uses a sand cast brass tone ring fitted properly to a 3 ply Canadian hard rock maple rim with a one piece pot metal flange. The OB has been the Gold Tone flagship banjo for 10 years and is played world wide by many pros (E.P. Bill Keith, Frank Wakefeild) and many recording artists. The neck of the OB-250 is of slim line design for fast playing and low string action. The unique Gold Tone straight line tailpieces allow for more downward pressure on the head for the best vibration transmission. The OB is meticulously set up by banjo luthiers in the Gold tone Florida banjo shop. The OB-250 is fully bound in beautifully flamed maple including the body and finger board. Check features and prices of any competitive banjo and you'll find the Orange Blossom is undoubtly the finest banjo in this price range.
