ODE : Model D

Submitted by rollin36 on 1/31/2007

Where Purchased: Ebay

Year Purchased: 2007
Price Paid: $2300.00 (Canadian) (bought USED) historic exchange rates / currency converter


This ODE has a sound that ODE's are known for. The only way to compare it would be to the stelling sound but with alittle more bass. This banjo will crack when whipped and hang with the best of them. I have compared it with banjo's with the top tonerings of today and it will hang with the best of them

Sound Rating: 9


The banjo was set up perfect right out of the case when it arrived.

This hardware will still be here long after i'm gone. 27 yrs and the armrest still looks like new. This gold plating must be baked on!..I would definatly use this banjo without a backup
