Price : US $422.77
This is WIlliam Lange's ''Challenger King'' tenor banjo. From the jazz age, this line of Lange banjo differed from the Paramount and Orpheums in fundamental ways. The pot is more akin to a true arch top with a gold plated tone rim set into the top of the rim and it is supplemented by a second plated tone hoop which lies atop the outer rim edge. It has a bold, brassy, jazzy sound and the volume can be controlled by sliding the outer resonator rim to close or open the holes in the resonator. The inlays and veneers are all in good shape and the frets were recently dressed so that I could say they were perfect. All the metal parts have been plated with gold including the tuners which are stamped ''Page Geared''. The dowel is stamped ''Lange Patent'' and additional numbers are stamped in the metal parts in the rim. The tail piece is elaborate and also plated with gold. Shipped in a battered case.
