Engineered with meticulous attention to detail and precision, Bales banjos are some of the finest custom-made banjos available. Built from beautiful hand-selected woods, coupled with a patented turbo rim, Bales' proprietary tone ring, and the best available hardware, Bales banjos produce a vintage sound that serious pickers demand. To experience the Bales sound, go to the following Ronnie Bales’ web site and click on video:

Bales mahogany #024, the banjo for sale, rings true to the Bales tradition of the finest craftsmanship. Made from exquisite 70+ year old mahogany, this banjo is just as handsome as it is great sounding. The component list includes: mahogany neck, beautifully swirled mahogany resonator, turbo rim design, nickel Prucha hardware, rosewood fingerboard, Bales tone ring #024 (built by Bill Blaylock), custom inlay design, Krishot tuners, Wadsworth bridge, and Presto tail piece. Includes Bales hard case.

See the September 2013 issue of Banjo Newsletter, "Luthier Ronnie Bales", for a discussion of the development of Ronnie's tone ring and turbo rim.

Except for pick and finger traces on the head and very light wear on the arm rest, the banjo is in excellent condition. No scratches or dings.
