Spirit Alison Brown Signature Model - Brass Patina

The Spirit Alison Brown Signature Model that actually initiated the project is slightly different. I wanted to create a banjo that projects a sound which is not that sharp, has less sustain and better tone separation; a mellow tone with accentuated bass range. That’s why we chose mahogany, a massive resonator in tobacco brown finish, and understated tortoise threeply binding. The radiused fingerboard is slightly wider; it measures 1.3 inch at the nut and features 24 frets with an extension over the head. The two-piece flange adds to the “shorter” tone. Subtle pearl inlays underline the robust size of the new peghead design. Inlays are placed at standard fret positions. I sincerely hope this banjo will become Alison’s soulmate in her own, distinctive music world as well as a tool for ripping classic, harddriving bluegrass licks. I’m sure it will become our most popular model.
