We are always impressed with the quality and care that goes into every Deering Banjo and this Vega #2 Tubaphone is no exception! The 11" pot and tubaphone tone-ring provide a nice variance on the open back sound, with great volume, punch, and bell-like clarity. The neck is highly flamed maple and features beautiful Mother of Pearl inlays on the ebony fretboard- a real stunner in looks and in sound. The banjo is in very clean condition, save for a small chip on the back tip of the headstock. The original Vega branded hard shell case is included.
