041 – Style 5 Dobson Special Banjo

/ / Banjos
Custom Banjo with Engraved Mother of Pearl Inlays

This banjo is the first of my Style 5 Dobson Specials. It has Style 5 inlay details with a Dobson tone ring sitting atop a rolled brass tone ring to isolate it from the wooden rim. This creates the unique Dobson tone but adds an even deeper more balanced low end while keeping a nice crisp well rounded sound. This banjo is owned by the talented Carling Berkhout and can be heard on her Instagram feed as well as on our albums with our duo Carling and Will.
