This banjo is no longer for sale (sold on 2010-05-01)
Price : US $72.00
Hi...This is an old banjo or banjo mandolin rim from the late 1800's. It is a 10'' brass/nickel spunover rim that I acquired with a Bacon Professional FF neck on it. I wanted only the neck for a different project and offering the rim for sale. I am confident that this is a Dobson or Buckbee part because of the 20 unique styled tension brackets that were common on Dobson banjos and also on some Buckbee banjos in the late 1800's. 1 bracket is a bit shorter than the rest. It looks very close in style and is hard to notice the difference. ( pic 4 shows this) The tension hoop and skin head are included however the skin has a slight tear. You can salvage the flesh hoop. As with most of these old rims, it is slightly out of round by approx 1/4'' but easy enough to rectify when you assemble it with the correct length dowel stick. No other parts are included other than described and shown in pictures.
I live in Canada but travel to the US 2 times per week and can ship USPS or Canada Post, depending on where you live. $12 via USPS Priority within the lower 48 or $15 Canada Post. UK will be actual cost based on packaged size of 12''x12''x5'' and approx 4lbs via Canada Post International. I will charge $35 and refund any overage after I get receipt. Thanks!
