Deering Vega® #2 Banjo
- Customer Reviews (0)
The tubaphone tone ring creates that unique Vega tone in this professional quality maple banjo. The Vega No.2 is a banjo made of top grade curly maple stained light amber and buffed to a high gloss. The dimensions of the neck are quite similar to the early Vega banjos – full, yet fast and comfortable. We make genuine Vega Tubaphone tone rings of brass to create a beautiful quality of tone and projection. We precisely fit the tubaphone tone ring to the 3-ply violin grade maple rim, which we also fit with a brass bracket band and frosted top head to create a crisp tone for all styles of music.
Whether you play old time, bluegrass, blues, classical, or compose your own music, the Vega No.2 offers a timeless classic reborn with traditional appearance, world renowned craftsmanship, and classic tone.
