While we think all Ome banjos are beautiful, this one has some especially nice flame maple on the neck and rim.

A rolled brass ring gives the Mira a subtle boost in brightness without adding too much weight.

Ome's Description

The Mira features the OME rolled brass tone ring fitted to our 12”, 2-ply solid maple rim to produce our clearest, brightest old-time banjo tone.

The Mira’s neck has a radiused ebony fingerboard with 17 frets and an S-scoop. Select curly maple tonewoods, classic abalone and MOP shell inlays in the peghead, fingerboard, and heel cap, make the Mira an exceptional instrument.
