The Maple Ridge provides an auspicious introduction to the world of Rickard Banjos, with a thumpy, warm tone that can be hard to find in instruments manufactured by bigger retailers - and that's established Bill Rickard as Canada's best banjo builder. While it may be our most basic option, the Maple Ridge is no slouch, with premium tone woods and a Dobson-style tone ring for an authentic old-time sound that clawhammer players won't be able to get enough of. Premium upgrades like Rickard's famous Cyclone planetary tuners and EVO gold frets make this one a banjo that demands attention, as well as improving playability and durability in turn. We can't wait to send this instrument home with you. Included in the price is a Superior hard-shell case.
