The Eclipse features the OME Vintage brass tone ring fitted to our 11”, 2-ply solid maple rim to produce our clearest, brightest Old-time banjo tone. Resonant, saturated walnut balance, classic abalone and MOP shell inlays in the slotted peghead, fingerboard, and heel cap, make the Eclipse an exceptional instrument.
