Othello is black so what is better than Blackberry Jam. This is the new ebony banjo Othello with the white lady tone ring.

What tone!
A beautiful solid (versus airy) timbre with GRANDE sustain! My theory (in part) is that because of all of the very hard ebony the transfer of energy, in terms of time, from the strings to the wood, is lengthened, thus Othello's sustain is extremely high. (It isn't the tone ring . . . it is the wood and your construction.) I love the sound Dan. I am amazed and extremely impressed. Happy birthday Othello!

Dan, I am just flat knocked out by the sound of Othello. Of course he is the most beautiful banjo ever . . . but the sound . . . incredible.

I'm comin' to Paris to play this banjo!
Many, many congratulations,
