The ALPHA Bluegrass banjo combines elegant simplicity with classic construction to offer an alternative-sounding and top-quality hand-made instrument at a more modest price. At the heart of the ALPHA is our  3-ply ToneRim, a Classic one-piece flange, a Tortoid-bound standard resonator, hand-filed and shaped nickel-silver frets and bone string nut, and Old-Timey Bluegrass set up. Weighing roughly 8.5 pounds, this is ideal for those wanting softer tones and volume, as well less weight out of their Bluegrass banjo. A Deluxe hard-shell case, and limited Lifetime warranty are included.
