Gold Tone OB-250 Plus 5-String Banjo With Tony Pass Rim and JLS Tonering With Case

This banjo has about every high end feature that could possibly be crammed in just one banjo!  It’s the loaded version with leather seats and power windows and all that stuff!

The "plus" in the OB-250+ is the ultra-premium JLS #12 tone ring. Developed by master caster Jim Stull of San Antonio, Texas!  This tonering is the result of years of analyzing many pre-war tone rings to replicate the formula of the bronze alloy used to make them the sought-after pieces of hardware they've become.  This long-skirt tone ring improves the contact between the neck, the rim and the tone ring, increasing the transmission of energy from the pot to the neck.  It mimics the tone of the costly originals at a tiny fraction of the original's cost. The OB-250+TP also adds the phenomenal Tony Pass/Schaefer birch (recovered from the bottom of Lake Superior) block-style rim for even MORE powerful tone.  Available as left-handed model upon special request.  

Includes professional setup, Hardshell Case, 5th string spike installation, Lifetime Warranty, and Free Shipping!
