About this banjo
Want to lose four pounds and still play a banjo with traditional beauty and great tone? This Orange Blossom model, rather than employing a brass tone ring, features a “tone rim”. The high-quality multi-ply maple rim is machined into the shape of a flat head tone ring, but its all-wood design puts your OB-250 on a diet. If you’re troubled with neck or shoulder fatigue during those long parking lot jams, THIS is your banjo. All other OB-250 features are here, including curly maple binding on the maple neck and resonator, GT-Master planetary tuners, hearts & flowers inlay, one-piece curly maple veneer on the resonator, a gorgeous new tobacco-brown finish and a super setup done right here at the Florida Gold Tone shop. Available as left-handed model.

I would recommend them to anyone and everyone
Fantastic banjos sold by fantastic people. I have bought two banjos from Banjo.com and about to buy my third from them. These guys are just great people to go business with; knowledge, banjo players themselves, and just super nice. I do business with them because they are not just looking to sell my any banjo. They provide great input based upon what I want and need; not just what cost the most. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone interested in getting a banjo.
Highly recommend them to others
Barry at Banjo.com helped me make a great choice on purchasing a new banjo. He answered my emails and phone calls promptly. After a few conversations I went with his newly designed Bish Line Coal Dust. I ordered it and he kept me updated on its progress. It arrived in perfect condition and it's even nicer than he described. I will keep Banjo.com at the top of my list for any future purchases and would highly recommend them to others. Thank you again to Barry and his staff.
I couldn't be more pleased with this lovely instrument and the customer service
I recently purchased a Deering Sierra mahogany open back banjo from Banjo.com. Since I live in north Georgia, only two and one-half hours from the home of Banjo.com, I was able to visit the Banjo Barn where Barry give me the opportunity to "test drive" several banjos and he assisted me in narrowing down to my final choice. I must say, I couldn't be more pleased with this lovely instrument and the customer service I received from Barry and Banjo.com. Thank you!
