Dobro Style 27 Squareneck Sunburst, 1979

The Dobro Style 27 Squareneck seen here was built during 1979 at the OMI (Original Musical Instrument) plant in Huntington Beach, before OMI’s sale to Gibson. Dobro had a long and somewhat complex history.   Founded in 1928 by John, Rudy and Ed Dopyera – the Dopyera Brothers, shortened to DoBro – as John split from the recently formed National String Instrument Corporation.

❌SOLD❌   Deering Sierra Mahogany 5-String Banjo Satin Natural, 2020

Here’s a Deering Sierra Mahogany 5-string banjo in satin finish, a couple of years old and in very nice condition. The Sierra is one of Deering’s most popular banjos for good reason – it’s an excellent instrument. The Deering Sierra Mahogany is also available in Maple.   Both versions carry a host of high-end features  that are very meaningful in terms of tone and playability , but have less decoration than higher-priced models.

Vega Vintage Star Dobson Style Open Back Banjo by Deering

Vega Vintage Star Dobson Style Open Back Banjo by Deering

The new Vega Vintage Star open back banjo by Deering has arrived, featuring a classic Dobson-style tone ring, Ebony fingerboard and Satin finish! At the heart of the Vintage Star lies a stunning Dobson tone ring. Originally patented by Henry Dobson in 1881, the Dobson balances the low ends with clear highs, and adds just the right amount of sustain to the banjo. The brass Dobson glows from behind the renaissance head, which itself sits on a thinner walled, 12” violin grade maple rim. A knotless tailpiece tops off the set up to produce a classic old-time tone.
