This is our version of the legendary Vega Tubaphone banjo from the turn of the century. A very close representation with some modern improvements, this banjo will stand out in any crowd. Our Tubaphone tone ring is made in house by hand and molded with exacting specifications from an original, making the tone unmistakable from nearly a century ago when it was first created. If you need a banjo with good volume, great sustain, and an incredible low end, the Pisgah Tubaphone is for you.
