WILLIAMS BRANDED ORPHEUM STYLE 1. 5 STRING BANJO. LANGE MADE CIRCA 1912. PROBABLY FOR CANADIAN MAKER R.S. WILLIAMS OF TORONTO AND I WOULD THINK QUITE RARE.
CAME TO ME FROM AN ENGLISH ANTIQUE DEALER. LOOKS QUITE ORIGINAL APART FROM A COUPLE OF RIM BOLTS. I JUST FITTED A RICKARD TAILPIECE AND STRUNG IT UP WITH SOME ODD STRINGS I HAD AND SHE SOUNDS GOOD. IMO WOULD BENEFIT FROM A PROPER CLEAN AND SET UP. OBVIOUSLY SOME OF THE PLATING IS WORN. BUT THE MAPLE NECK AND POT ARE SOLID. SOME WEAR TO THE FRETS MAYBE DUE TO THE STEEL STRINGS IT WAS STRUNG WITH WHEN I ACQUIRED IT. BUT I FIND IT PLAYS WELL WITH NYLON. NICE OLD INSTRUMENT. 27 INCH SCALE. 11 & 1/4 INCH POT. NO CASE ALTHOUGH I COULD PROVIDE A SUPERIOR ONE FOR AN EXTRA 70. COUPLE MORE PHOTOS ON MY HOMEPAGE
