Banjo Description


This banjo is unmarked, but the inlay pattern and hardware make it almost certain that it was made by Slingerland in the 1920s.

This is a good sized banjo for a smaller person. It has some nice wood purfling around the edge of the rim. It has a vintage vellum (skin) head on it, which gives it a warm, plunky sound. The tuners are original friction tuners. (A new head can be added for $50 and geared tuners for $75).
