I believe it's the best sounding new banjo on the market in it's price range!!-Ross Nickerson
We've taken our celebrated OB-250 and improved it dramatically by adding many unique features reserved for only the highest-quality banjos. Upgraded features include the JLS tone ring, 3-ply maple rim, coordinator rod adjuster, Brian Hooper Intonated Custom Bridge, a raised neck to body mount, and a deluxe case. The JLS Tone Ring is a replica of the Gibson tone ring used in the Granada models in the 30’s.
The maker, from Texas, has analyzed an original tone ring and duplicated the exact specifications. When electronically tested for pitch, sustain, and ring, it equals the original. It also has a slightly longer “skirt” which (1) provides more contact with wood rim and (2) provides direct contact with the heel of the neck. The neck is attached with a conventional hanger bolt going through a hole at the edge of the tone ring. This method provides an extremely tight fit and maximum heel contact with tone ring.
