Pisgah Banjo 11" Appalachian Cherry Short Scale 5-String Banjo New
The Pisgah Banjo company makes high quality, world class banjos at surprisingly modest prices. This Appalchian has a 11-inch head and a short, 25.5” length, the same as a modern steel-string guitar like the OM or the Dreadnought. The shorter scale not only makes for an easier-playing banjo with less fret stretch but also adds a more mellow tone. This model has a maple shell fitted with a rolled brass tone ring, a setup that produces a bit more punch and power than an all-wood rim that you’ll find on their Woodchucks and Possums. We ordered this banjo with a cherry neck and aged brass hardware. The Richlite fretboard has a frailing scoop. Includes a padded gig bag.
