Gold Tone OB 250

New product

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 Goldtone purchase. Ross N

For many years I have wanted to play the 5 string banjo and now that I am semi retired I look forward having a go. I'm delighted with the learners package.

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.

Couldn't be happier.

Ross, This is Adrian Conley in Kentucky. Received my new OB-250 today. 
Couldn't be happier. It's beautiful and sounds unreal. Thanks so much again for all the help.

Thanks for everything!

Ross I received my Gold Tone OB-250 last week and absolutely love it! I’ve also purchased the Banjo Encyclopedia and have started to wade through that as well. I started playing the banjo about three years ago, learning on an inexpensive model I bought at a local store. I was disappointed with my progress and put it away for almost two years, mostly because I could never keep it in tune. The OB-250 exceeds my expectations and I’m anxious to get started again! Thanks for everything!

Goldtone OB 250 Review

Ross, Six months ago I purchased an Orange Blossom 250 banjo from you. I am extremely happy with this purchase and will recommend your site to my friends for years to come. Your recommendation for this banjo was perfect and I can not emphasize how happy I am with the banjo and the included instructional DVD's. Thank you for making my passion more enjoyable.
Very Respectfully,

The OB250+ is a real gem

.I have to admit I was not expecting what I got. I own a 20 year old banjo that was hand made in Kentucky and is an absolute delight. I didn't think anything would come close to it but I figured a "store bought" could be my workhorse, campfire banjo. Surprise. The OB250+ is a real gem with a slightly stronger voice than my handmade. I like it as much or more than my old banjo. It feels great to play and with a few hundred hours of playing will get even better. The neck, with its tiger stripes and the inlay and all are pleasing just to look at and even the case is a cut above other cases!
So anyway. Thanks again. It really meant a lot and you really came through for me.
