The Old Tone Series 0T-800LN is the ultimate long neck banjo. Tuned 1-1/2 steps lower for the best singing keys, this model is ideal for the folk musician and closely resembles Mr. Pete Seeger’s famous and highly desired plunky tone. The 0T-800LN banjo pot assembly is an accurate reproduction of the most sought after design in the classic Old Time sound, the Vega Tubaphone. This model incorporates a fitted metal bracket band to an 11” maple rim in which the shoe lugs bolt directly to the bracket band instead of the wood rim allowing for a more solid tone and increased sustain. The 32-hole brass Tubaphone-style tone ring allows the sound to ring loud and clear with maximum sustain. Improvements to the original classic design include dual coordinator rods (instead of a dowel stick) for a solid neck fit and easy adjustment capabilities. Other features include a maple neck with bound ebony fingerboard, a classic engraved fingerboard inlay design, a Fairbanks-style headstock, 11” Renaissance banjo head, and a No Knot tailpiece. With final assembly and a complete setup at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida, this model delivers exactly what the contemporary long neck banjo player is looking for!.
