About this banjo

Our VRB-4 is a careful likeness of the pre-war style 4 banjos featuring a blend of walnut and chrome that is very pleasing to the eye. It features our 1930’s style Huber HR-30 Tone Ring and Huber Engineered Rim.

The neck is made from the highest quality straight grain walnut, which is also used for the resonator side walls. The walnut neck imparts a sweet tone with a clarity between the notes like no other model.

The resonator back features gorgeous figured walnut, inlaid with twin concentric rings of stained wood marquetry. Antiqued white/black/white binding finishes both the rosewood fingerboard and resonator side walls. The fingerboard and headstock are inlaid with the Flying Eagle pattern synonymous with style 4 banjos from the pre-war era, though the Hearts & Flowers pattern can be used at no additional charge.

In keeping with the originals from the 1930’s, all the metal parts on our VRB-4 are chrome plated. Grained ivoroid tuner buttons complete the vintage look on this model.
