VINTAGE ORPHEUM BANJO AGE UNKNOWN. HAS THE MOST INCREDIBLE WARM TONE FOR A BANJO. IT IS NOT AS TIN CAN SOUNDING AS SOME BANJOS. ONCE YOU HEAR IT YOU'LL FALL IN LOVE. DEFINATELY A PLAYER FOR BANJO LOVERS. WORDS ALONE DO NOT DESCRIBE THE TONE, PERHAPS ITS BECAUSE THIS BANJO HAS A SUPER HEAVY AND THICK POT WITH A TONE RING. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT KIND OF TONE RING, BUT IT IS THERE. NEW NO KNOT TAILPIECE. OLDER FIVE STAR PLANET TUNERS. ONE OF THEM IS A BIT ODD AS IT DOESN'T FEEL LIKE THE GEARS ARE MOVING, BUT THEY ARE,  AS IT TUNES UP NO PROBLEM. WILL COME WITH A BRAND NEW HARD SHELL CASE.


THE NECK ON THIS BANJO IS A REPRODUCTION, BUT IT IS NO AMATEUR JOB. THERE IS A BRASS PLATE YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICTURES THAT READS:


         ORPHEUM NO. 1 REPRO NECK


          JEREMY ALTMAN 1978


THE REPRO NECK IS  30 YEARS OLD AND MADE WITH A BEAUTIFUL BIRDS EYE MAPLE THAT IS THICK LIKE A BASEBALL BAT. THE CRAFTSMANSHIP IS GREAT AND IT MATCHES PERFECTLY WITH THE POT IN TERMS OF COLOR ETC... THE HEADSTOCK WAS MADE WITH THE ORIGINAL FACE PLATE. THE FRET BOARD MAY BE TOO AS WELL, I AM NOT SURE OF THAT. THE ACTION IS A BIT HIGH IN THE UPPER REGISTER.


THE INSIDE OF THE POT HAS HAD SOME INITIALS CARVED IN IT AS WELL AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICTURES.  THIS IS TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE THE BEST I CAN DESCRIBE THIS BANJO. ANY
