Oscar Schmidt OB3 Open Back 5-String Banjo
The OB3 is an open back style banjo from the Oscar Schmidt Company. The open back resonates the sound a little differently than having the back on there but certainly makes the banjo much lighter and portable and it also redeuces the price of the banjo. The OB3 has an eighteen bracket tone ring and it's resonator is made of mahogany. The fifth string is geared and it uses a Remo branded head on the banjo, a nato wood neck, it has twenty two frets and comes with a limited lifetime warranty from the Oscar Schmidt Company. Oscar Schmidt is an old established manfacturer from the Chicago Illinois area that designed this though it is an imported instrument.
Get started on the banjo or use this as a practice banjo you can take out to campfires ot friends house since it's so much lighter and portable.
