121 – 11″ Curly Maple Dobson Special

/ / Banjos

This banjo is one of the first to feature an exciting new piece of hardware unique to Seeders Instruments. A new neck attachment hardware that is designed and manufactured in house that allows for a bolt on neck assembly but keeps the look and placement of a traditional dowel stick. It also adds rigidity to the rim and neck joint area making for a more secure, solid, and balanced tension neck attachment. The design supports the rim above the dowel stick much more than the traditional U style yoke and pin and looks great doing so as well!

These banjos have 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 having modern playability and durability.
