The Deal: Last week I posted about a Gold Tone Banjitar Giveaway.
Gold Tone has another banjo giveaway going on at their website. They are giving away an OT-800 Tubeaphone (MSRP: $1,195). While the banjitar is a very non-traditional banjo model, the Tubephone is a throwback to an earlier time. According to the Gold Tone product information:
This Vega style replica is an accurate reproduction of the most sought after pot in the classic Old Time sound. A metal bracket band contains the lug bolts avoiding holes in the rim for a solid tone. The brass Tubaphone style tone ring rings loud and clear with maximum sustain. Classic style engraved inlays, maple neck and rim, adjustable coordinator rods (instead of a dowel stick), and our new Fairbanks style headstock will make this instrument the most sought after in our Old Tone series.
