Regular price $3,460 (SOLD)

OME Mira 11" open back banjo featuring walnut neck and rim, radiused ebony fingerboard, frailing scoop, and optional wooden armrest.

Tonally, we think the 11" version of the Mira is a bit more crisp and clear, making it perfect for old-time players who want to cut through the mix.

The rolled brass tone ring adds a bit of volume and sustain without weighing down the banjo too much. If you're seeking a lightweight banjo with a powerful voice, this Mira is worth a look.

Includes hard case.
