The great Otis Taylor with Ome's limited 'Otis'

Ome has created a very cool 12 inch rim, open back 5 string banjo with the  multi-talented blues musician Otis Taylor, and named it after him. This banjo honors the great organic, woody tones of the first banjos brought to America from Africa.  Check out Taylor’s distinctive, percussive style in this great clip about his 2008 album “Recapturing the Banjo”. This has a  12 inch wooden pot perfect for more the percussive playing style and gives a really nice, warm tone. Crafted from Maple and comes with a hard case.  None in our store as of yet, but if you’ve any interest, just drop Brian a line.
