Lovingly handcrafted by Oak Park, IL-based luthier Adam Krefman from 11/21 to 2/22, this visually compelling and eminently playable 10 3/4" rim, 26 3/16" scale open back banjo boasts the resonant, saturated response of figured White Oak for its rim and neck, sustainably sourced from felled Chicago area populations.

Low, even action across a striking birdseye Sugar Maple (hard maple) fingerboard with a 1 1/4" nut offers a silky hardwood response, similar in feel to ebony or rosewood. With a custom cast bronze tension hoop designed by the builder and cast in Broadview, IL and a genuine goat skin head responsibly prepared by Jeff Menzies in Jamaica, this inspired instrument is more than ready for any live or studio session. 

All instruments from the Old Town School Music Store are professionally inspected and set-up before shipping, and directly support the missions, programs, and continued growth of the Old Town School of Folk Music.
