With a robust sound, you'll find it easy to fall in love with this very unique instrument. One of our most overlooked banjos, the Music Maker Riverboat offers a great deal of sound at a very fair price. The unique, almost double layed wood tone ring and top tension head contribute to a deep bass, with crisp highs. Great for clawhammer, or even bluegrass with the almost open backed resonater. Fairly light in weight, with planetary tuners.
