bought a superior white banjo case about 8 mos. ago for around 260.00. to me it is pretty flimsy and does not latch rite. also i play a stelling and when i put the banjo in the case the top of the peghead is up against the top of the case.

the sound is rich and full. it has very nice low and top end sound all the way up the neck. have not heard any overtones.
Sound Rating: 8
the banjo setup was great. the drawback to an ome is u have to take the neck off to adjust any bow. thank god i only had to do it once, but i think this makes for a stonger peghead. neck action is easy. other than adjusting neck bow, setup is easy.

this banjo is made of walnut and maple. craftmanship is outstanding with both wood and hardware. it has a style D baldwin neck and mastertone style pot (gibson style flange),very pretty banjo.
Appearance Rating: 10
i CAN depend on this banjo. the only reason i have a back up is if i were to break a string and didnt have time to change it.

sorry i dont have a model for this banjo but ome built it for me and that name stands for alot. in my opinion, ome has the best craftmanship offered. i have a gibson, a stelling and the ome. the ome is the best playing banjo i have.
