Rickard Dobson 12"

Photo for Ad 181695

Rickard Banjos offer excellent craftsmanship and tone alongside their unique, old-timey aesthetic. This "Dobson" model features a maple rim, 25.5" scale, frailing scoop and antiqued brass hardware (to go with that Dobson-style tone ring). Wonderful, old-time cluckiness, and a fat note attack -- retained even when the banjo is played muted with a cloth or rag inside the pot. Priced with hard case.
