Openback banjos (versus resonator banjos) are preferred by Old-timey and clawhammer players for the mellower, plunky tone. Open back banjos are also lighter and can be less expensive than a resonator banjo. They usually have a different setup than a resonator banjo, often with a higher string action (string action refers to how high the strings are positioned above the fingerboard). We have a great selection of openback banjos from which to choose, from our beginner models to the highly sought after Vega Old Time banjos.
