For Sale: Piccolele 072 - Oscar Schmidt

Photo


This is a lovely condition banjo ukulele from the 1920's that I have converted to a small 5 string, slightly smaller than a piccolo banjo. This is an Oscar Schmidt product from New Jersey which was not know for high quality instruments.

However, this rim is made like a Vega with multiple hard maple laminations, as is the neck. The 7.5 inch diameter rim makes for a little more sound.

This model sports a tone ring - a thin metal wrapped over a hoop which fits over the rim. I have added a plated rolled brass ring under this, which improves the sound dramatically.

Geared tuners makes this a nice banjo to tune.

These models have distinctive nuts not common amongst vintage banjos, and all are present.

The tailpiece is a newer repro Elite style.

This banjo is a solid player and sounds great!

Well fitted new gig bag provided, or deluxe hard shell case(as pictured below) for an additional $100.
