Product Description

A Spun brass tone ring, ideal for Old Time, Classical, Folk, Civil War music, over 100 years of Vega tradition and Deering's innovative approach to banjo crafting went into the creation of the Vega Senator model. The spun brass tone ring gives it a bright yet warm tone. The Senator has the time honored vintage Vega peghead profile, and a rich warm brown stained maple neck with adjustable truss rod and a 3-ply rim with dual coordinator rods.

The hard, dense, naturally beautiful ebony fingerboard is inlaid with pearl dots, and a Vega star at the fifth fret. This open back Vega Senator has the ease of playability that all Deering banjos are noted for, and the light weight desired by many banjo players without sacrificing sound quality and sustain.

What is your overall opinion of this product?
The vega senator overall is a fantasic banjo. It has a sweet oldtyme sound that fits well with oldtyme music. It has (depending on how your style is) a nice mellow tone with the rolled brass tone ring. I myself like the brighter sound in banjos only because I play both bluegrass and clawhammer. I find that this banjo blends well with other instruments with out over powering them instead it sounds great blending in. If you are lookng for an oldtyme banjo this is it. if your looking for a banjo that can cover both bluegrass and oldtyme (clawhammer) this is not your banjo.but if oldtyme is your your style this is the banjo for you.
