Gold Tone OB-250 Orange Blossom Banjo


SKU: CON-28057578 Category: Tag:


The Orange Blossom (OB) banjos harken back to Gold Tone’s early days and their popularity hasn’t diminished over the decades. These professional-grade banjos evoke the great pre-WW ll banjos played by the Masters: Earl Scruggs, Don Reno, J.D. Crow all depended on those great banjos from the Midwest USA to power their sound. The OB-250 has everything needed to produce THAT tone: a sand-cast bell brass flathead tone ring, a cast one-piece resonator flange circling a multi-ply maple rim with twin coordinator rods and an extra-deep curly maple multi-ply resonator for better low-end response. The curly maple neck has a bound ebony fretboard with hearts & flowers inlay. The bracket hooks even have metric threading to enable finer tension adjustment. This instrument is in very good used condition with just light play wear and includes a hard shell case.
