Also a vintage reissue instrument from Gold Tone, the OT-800 is a faithful reproduction of the classic Old Time open back, the Vega Tubaphone. The 32-hole brass Tubaphone-style tone ring allows the sound to ring loud and clear with maximum sustain. The OT-800 incorporates a fitted metal bracket band to an 11_„? maple rim in which the shoe lugs bolt directly to the bracket band instead of the wood rim allowing for a more solid tone and increased sustain.
Other features include a maple neck with bound ebony fingerboard with frailing scoop, a classic engraved fingerboard inlay design, a Fairbanks-style headstock, 11_„? Renaissance banjo head, and a No Knot tailpiece.
