In 1960, Chuck Ogsbury started Ode Banjos, with the goal to make exceptional yet affordable instruments. After a 40 year hiatus (spent focusing on the OME banjo line), Chuck and his team are reviving the Odes, bringing their no-frills, 19th century inspired banjos into the 21st century. Featuring a 12" multi-play black maple tone-rim, heavy notched brass tension hoop, 14 rim brackets, and a cherry and ebony neck, the Sundance is easy to play and meant to last through the years.
