The Maker: Charles Ogsbury
Charles Ogsbury began designing and building banjos in 1960 under the Ode name. He sold Ode to Baldwin in 1966 and started Ome Banjos in 1970. Charles emphasizes that his long-term passion has always been to craft outstanding banjos which equal or surpass the best of the vintage classics. Ome’s hand-built instruments feature exceptional tone, playability, and beauty, and are made to last a life-time.
The Ome range includes Bluegrass, Old Time Open-Backs, Tenor and Plectrum banjos. Each instrument feature is designed by Charles Ogsbury. Ome also pride themselves on using the finest banjo building materials and timbers with options such as the finest select curly maple, walnut, and ebony woods, hand-rubbed finishes, hand-engraved armrests and tailpieces, wood carving, dye-coloring. Gold-plated metal parts are also available on all Ome banjos.
