According to Donald Zepp, this is a 2014 Chanterelle model Mike Ramsey Tubaphone of which he still owns the original “Prototype”. His prototype was the first one built in 2000 and he never “Ever” had another come through the shop. For a man as versed in banjos as Donald Zepp, why would he keep this particular banjo after closing up shop and selling all but a few of his banjo collection? Because its an Awesome and rare instrument. Together, he and I could only account for 4 of these ever built. Neither he nor I can account for the history of this one. Its a mint beautiful Walnut model S/N 2728 with NO visible signs of use and still all original, no upgrades or changes in any way and the best sounding banjo I’ve personally ever played. Even all the nickel hardware is shiny and looks new with no tarnish. I have included a sound link here. Its got just about everything most players want in a banjo from sound, aesthetics, feel, and even weight. Not too heavy and not too light. Hard to find any fault at all with this one. Why sell it? Because I’m having another custom banjo built as I write this and I just can’t keep both. Price includes the original case also in near mint +++ condition. Price has been set by Donald Zepp. (“clearly, I think that's a fair price!” Donald Zepp). I might consider a trade for a nice Acoustic guitar. Shipping and insurance will only be what my cost is, no more, and will be determined after I have your address. More photos available on request. Below is a sound clip recorded on my iPad ... “Sally in the Garden”.
