046 – 12″ Style 3 Dobson Special Banjo

/ / Banjos
Walnut Dobson Banjo with Engraving

This is a 12″ Walnut Style 3 variation. This banjo has a powerful well rounded tone unique to the Dobson Special with a comfortable neck profile ideal for all hand sizes and comfort while playing all over the neck. The Dobson Special utilizes a Dobson tone ring mounted on a rolled brass ring to isolate the tone ring from the wooden rim giving it a unique and powerful Dobson sound with more balanced and a crisp overall tone. The low end range is enhanced slightly with the larger 12″ rim. It’s simple but elegant inlays and overall design has a vintage inspired look while adding modern play ability and durability.
