Goldtone OB250 Banjo

Notes from Ross Nickerson on the OB 250 models from Goldtone.
Does this look like a banjo that only costs this much? It looks and plays like a $4000 to $5000 dollar banjo. Wayne at Goldtone has really perfected this model without raising the price. I have a demo video of the OB 250 and OB 250 Plus also a close up description on video. My price is very good on this model and it comes with free shipping and hard case, not to mention the free Book/CD/DVD offer and members only site subscription with each Gold tone purchase. Ross N

The OB-250 has been called the "best bluegrass banjo" in it's price range ! A slim neck and excellent setup make the OB-250 a great choice for the serious bluegrass musician. The quality and price makes it a great step up for the intermediate player and for that matter with the price like this its a great banjo to learn on. The new OB-250 has been redesigned and now includes maple binding, GT Master Planetary Tuners, 1st fret inlay, One piece curly maple veneer on the resonator, and a new gorgeous tobacco brown finish.

New OB-250
After talking with Ross at length over the phone, I decided to buy the Gold Tone OB-250 and haven't regretted it a second! He gave me the best price that I found anywhere online and I received it promptly. I ordered it on a Thursday and received it the following Monday; pristine, set up and ready to play. I was astonished at how well it played, how loud it was and the overall clarity of tone. It rings like a bell. Compared to my old "beginner" banjo, the difference was nothing short of astonishing! I've been nothing but pleased with it and with the service that Ross has given. I highly recommend both.

OB 250 / Customer from Netherlands
Hello Ross, I just received the banjo and ten minutes later The banjo encyclopedia. The banjo is perfect and so is the hard case. The instrument just looks great, really much much more than I expected. Great sound too. And now we have to practice. I’m sure I will have lots of fun playing this banjo. Many thanks, Wim. By the way, there is even a spike at the 8th fret.
