Rickard Tubaphone Banjo - Pre-Owned


Make an enquiry


This handsome open-back banjo was built by luthier Bill Rickard in Aurora, ON Canada. This classic old-time banjo sports a 12-inch maple rim, as well as a maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard. This banjo has a bright punchy tone, perfect for various traditional styles of music, and would also feel right at home in an indie-folk context. The Tubaphone tone-ring gives this instrument a robust response, and offers plenty of volume for the stage or studio. This banjo is in excellent condition and comes in its OHSC.
