We highly recommend that you try an A-scale banjo at some point in your banjo playing journey. They are incredibly comfortable and fun to sit with and the higher register sound sits nicely in a jam setting. This Pisgah Dobson is a fantastic little banjo with a big personality. It features a maple neck with a folk heel carve, an 11" maple pot, persimmon fretboard, and Balsam Banjoworks brass hardware. The Dobson style tone ring is bell shaped and light weight which provides a nice sustain and resonance to the tone. This includes a padded Pisgah gigbag.
