Antique Brass Tricone
Dreaming of a vintage National Tricone with that well-traveled, well-loved look — but without the problems compounded by ninety years of making music? Our Antique Brass Tricone boasts pure olden-days mojo with a sweet sound, yet plays like new. The brass body is plated and then given an aged patina, resulting in a unique vintage look. Each instrument is individually finished by hand so no two instruments look alike, making each one a unique work of art. The honduran mahogany neck features an ebony fretboard and 1930s peghead with vintage-style tuning machines. This Tricone looks like it’s a veteran of the juke joints and dancehalls, and the brass body emits a bell-like tone and rich sustain that backs up the appearance.
