110 – Dragon 12″ Curly Maple Dobson Special Banjo

/ / Banjos

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. It’s simple but elegant inlays and overall design has a vintage inspired look while adding modern play ability and durability. This custom ordered Dobson Special features a custom dragon engraved peghead inlay designed from Ed Ap Llwyd’s original artwork.
