Denny Openback Banjo, Shakti, 12" Rim, Dobson Tone Ring
This lovely openback banjo features a Dobson tone ring for warm tone with plenty of sustain. Andy Denny uses North American hardwoods (locally grown when possible) for the neck and rim, US-made hardware, and he makes his own tension hoops. He names each banjo -- Shakti is one of a kind.
