About this Banjo
The famous Vega Pie Back Resonator projects the tone of this 19 fret Vega Professional Tenor banjo. Greg Deering re-created the process for making the pie back resonator of the excellent professional grade Tenor banjo. Made with a Tubaphone tone ring, it has the punch, crack, snap, whatever you call it, that quick response and brilliant clarity that perfect tenor sound that is the heart of Dixieland Jazz, Traditional Jazz, Ragtime and Swing, but can also be played and enjoyed in any style of music at the artists discretion. This professional banjo is beautifully made to a high standard of excellence and is a valuable and reliable instrument you can count on for years of enjoyment.
