A few sustained bars of your favorite Flatt & Scruggs tune will practically erase the sound of any other modern banjo from your memory.
Why We Love This
It's bittersweet to realize this is the last new banjo we'll receive from OME's Colorado shop (the company was recently sold) -- but what a banjo it is! This Omega Bluegrass model almost seems to announce, "Watch out," when you open the case. And playing a few rolls makes the message even more present. The sound is penetrating and clear, with classic bluegrass midrange presence and bite. A few sustained bars of your favorite Flatt & Scruggs tune will practically erase the sound of any other modern banjo from your memory. And with Glenn Carson's phenomenal engraving adorning the fingerboard and peghead, it's as much a showstopper in the looks department as it is anywhere else. Priced with hard case, this is an heirloom quality banjo for anyone interested in a finely crafted instrument for bluegrass.
