OVERVIEW

Great clawhammer banjo.

The Vega Old Tyme Wonder has the warm, sweet sound that is popular with clawhammer musicians. The scooped fingerboard allows the clawhammer player lots of room to play closer to the center of the strings for the mellowist tone possible. The fiberskyn head and no-knot tailpiece soften the banjo sharpness and the slender armrest is in keeping with the sparse asesthetic that is so beloved in traditional banjos. The three-ply violin-quality maple neck makes this banjo clear, sweet and full-bodied in tone. The maple neck is shaped for easy fretting while retaining the feel of some of the vintage Vega banjos. The coordinator rod allows adjustment of the action height and the two-way truss rod completes the adjustability for the novice or the master player. One of the best clawhammer banjos made for the traditional player.

It is the mellowest banjo sound, a lovely full tone. The Old Tyme Wonder is reliable and exceptional in tone, playability, versatility and responsiveness, with a round woody tone perfect for old-time string bands.
