A deluxe banjo from the "Jazz Age"
B&D Silver Bell #4 Plectrum

All the Silver Bell models had the same basic innards, so they all performed to the same professional standards and tone. This style "No. 4" is about midway in the lineup, and has gold plated engraved metal parts, pearl buttons, mother of pearl inlay, heel carving, fancy shaded finish, and elegant figured maple. All in all, it's an elegant production.
