Rickard Brass Spunover Dobson 12 Inch Banjo, 2019

We’ve received a new Brass Spunover Dobson 12-inch, open back banjo from Rickard Banjos in Aurora, just north of Toronto, and it’s a real peach,  as Rickard products tend to be.  Bill Rickard has been developing his line of banjos and banjo components for several years and his output is impressive. This Brass Spunover Dobson Ring open back 5-string banjo is a great example of the quality of his work.

The Rickard Maple Ridge Frailing Banjo is an open back, frailing style instrument built in Aurora, Ontario by Bill Rickard who also crafts the metal components.  This lovely, very well made banjo features a three-piece laminated maple neck with a two-way adjustable truss rod, 25.5 inch scale ebony fingerboard with Frailing scoop, and ‘dot and star’ inlay pattern. The eleven inch diameter pot uses a 3/8 inch maple rim and a Rickard-made, Dobson style tone ring. Tuners are by Gotoh and are quite good.
