When you're seeking an outstanding, long-lasting banjo with great tone, this Bart Reiter Galax with Scoop is an excellent choice. It has a Whyte Laydie tone ring, and delivers a nice old-time sound.
This has a Mahogany neck and Ebony fingerboard with a Pearl Star inlay on its head. A standard 26 1/4” scale gives this banjo a familiar feel, and its scooped fingerboard makes it perfect for clawhammer and frailing playing styles. It also comes with a full setup from one our experienced luthiers too.
