This curly maple banjo
was designed to sound sweet and woody. The old western cowboy
river boat theme was kept in mind when this model was created,
while keeping the old prewar, look and dry dynamics.
I must say
that I was surprised at how pure the sound became. I love the
old tone ring styles with a band, but playing alone or in my
living room, the Mule would always be my "go to" banjo. It
makes me want to slow it all down and play beautiful melodies
and chords, yet it doesn't lack at all when I want to crack
down on it.
metal tone ring, this banjo is around 3 to 3.5 pounds lighter
in weight than most tone ring banjos. My back loves this banjo
