OME Flora 12-inch open back banjo with maple neck and rim. This banjo features OME's beautiful "Burnt Sienna" stain.

Includes hardshell case.

OME's Description

The FLORA provides the discerning Old-Time banjo player with just a touch more volume and brilliance than our Tupelo, Minstrel and Wizard banjos, while still being warm and round in tone.

This is because this model utilizes the OME 5/16” rolled brass tone-ring fitted to our 9/16” 2-ply solid rim which increases response and tonal clarity.

The FLORA with its gracefully designed Abalone and Mother-Of-Pearl shell inlays, Ebonite capped and double-bound rim and hand-carved and finished neck, and OME aged brass hardware, is a classic Old-Time banjo.
