Description

A brand new model that offers a fantastic old time tone and vintage vibe.

Description Specs Media

When you open the case of the Vega Vintage Star, you will find a banjo that captures the soul of late 19th century banjos with the playability and adjustability of a modern instrument 

At the heart of the vintage star lies a brass Dobson tone ring. Originally patented by Henry Dobson in 1881, the Dobson tone ring balances the low ends found on this larger 12” rimmed banjo with clear highs. 

The Dobson tone ring is beautifully accented by a thinner rim construction, renaissance head, and knotless tailpiece to produce a classic old-time tone.
