Now with a featuring the new Grand 12" Rim, this banjo is perfect for old time clawhammer banjoists. The wider 12" rim brings out more bass response and truly gives a great old time banjo tone when paired with the fiberskyn head. Featuring a scooped neck to ease playing over the fingerboard. We build in a traditional "scoop" that allows more room for the fingers and thumb of the right hand to pluck the strings over the fingerboard.
