The Tranjo is a full scale banjo that breaks down to 20″ in length without tools in less than a minute! This is not a toy but a full scale banjo that plays and intonates well!!!

Vega Tu-ba-phone No.9 Tenor Banjo 1928 (Consignment) SOLD

around 1909.   The Tu-ba-phone tone ring has a square crossection with holes perforated on its inner surface and is considered to this day,  one of the finest tone rings for both tenor and 5-string frailing banjos!   This particular tenor is a No. 9 model with intricately engraved mother-of-pearl inlays and a highly detailed neck-heel carving!  These Tu-ba-phone No. 9 banjos are not only sought after as tenors,  but are highly valued as potential conversions to 5-string claw-hammer instruments!
