OME North Star 5-string resonator banjo with walnut neck and resonator.

The OME North Star banjo combines elegant simplicity with classic design and construction to offer a quality hand-made instrument at a modest price.

This banjo features a walnut neck and resonator; aged brass hardware, the OME Vintage Flathead construction, and tung-oil varnish finish.

The OME Vintage tone ring is designed to have a large contact surface between the brass ring and the maple rim which tends to bond the tone ring and rim together, producing a very clear and responsive tonal effect. It is also about 30% heavier than the rolled brass ring for additional response.
