Gibson Ub-1 Banjo Ukulele, C. 1928

Photo for Ad 124759

Gibson UB-1 Model Banjo Ukulele, c. 1928, made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, shaded maple finish, maple neck and rim, ebonized fingerboard, black chipboard case.

This model is one of our perennial favorites! Although the diminutive UB-1 (retailing originally at $10.00!) was the least expensive instrument Gibson ever offered, these are still very well-made and have a unique tone all to themselves--rather like the sound is already coming off of a 78 RPM disc! The UB-1 is perfect for bringing closet flappers out of the woodwork. Fun, extremely playable, and awful darn cute.

Overall length is 19 3/4 in. (50.2 cm.), 6 in. (15.2 cm.) diameter head, and 3 in. (7.6 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 12 1/2 in. (318 mm.). Width of nut is 1 1/4 in. (32 mm.). This little UB has seen some use but plays and sounds very well. There is an old heel repair by the lower lag bolt that is solid but noticeable; it's unusual for this instrument but hasn't hurt function anyway. All else is complete and original except two of the screws holding on the resonator plate; the plating on the tailpiece has a lot of corrosion but most of the rest is relatively clean. There is some general finish wear, the only large spot is some thumbwear into the wood a bit on the back of the neck. A fine player with the patented "78RPM" sound in spades, housed in a period slightly oversized case that looks like it would also hold a very large revolver. Very Good + Condition.

GENTLY USED; just some minor finish scratches on back of neck and extremely minor fret pitting; simple model banjo by this contemporary maker; 12 inch maple rim with no tonering and 18 brackets; fine, walnut neck with ebony fingerboard; geared tuners with black buttons; a very fine instrument for Galax style playing.

1920s Regina Octave Banjo-Mandolin

Photo for Ad 124705

Here's a wonderful vintage instrument that's as rare as bicuspids in the mouths of poultry, and as difficult to find as sewing devices in piles of horse’s breakfast. The Regina brand was one of several (including Majestic and S.S. Stewart Wondertone) created by Gaetano Francisco Puntolillo, an independent Italian banjo maker from New York.

This large octave mandolin built on a banjo frame has an 11 3/4” head and a 21” scale, producing buckets full of tone with plenty of projection. Exhibiting the excellence of craftsmanship that is the hallmark of the “golden age of instrument making”, the rim is crafted of 7/8” thick mahogany with a decorative 5/8” band of inlaid marquetry around the lower part. It is equipped with one of the largest metal tone rings we have ever encountered �" a full 1 3/8” inches deep, with 23 holes. The neck is also an excellent example of early 20th century craftsmanship, made of hard rock maple with a streamer of alternating ebony and maple under the rosewood fingerboard, inlaid with delicate mother-of-pearl inlays often found on early Orpheum banjos. The peg head has the name Regina inlaid in pearl as well as delicate pearl grommets surrounding its eight tuning posts.

This unique instrument is in pristine condition other than a few handling marks on the back of the neck and some slight wear on the first three frets. Several manufacturers have lately produced similar instruments such as the “octo-banjo” and the “octo-manjo”. These creations pale in comparison to this vintage treasure. If you want the finest in craftsmanship, excellence in tone, and the escalating value of a vintage instrument, look no further.
$1,500.00 with chipboard case

Ome 12 Inch Irish Tenor Banjo (John Carty Model)

Photo for Ad 124703

A beautiful OME 12 inch tenor banjo. 19 frets. Pretty much mint. Can’t realy find a song on it. Mahogany with a rosewood fretboard. Open back. A mellow banjo with lots of sustain. John Carty plays this model I have been told.

You can hear me play it here to get an idea of the loud but mellow tone: https://youtu.be/fMjBqx7VzsM

Mid-1930's Gibson Kel Kroydon KK-11 Dbl Conversion Banjo

Photo for Ad 124700

Was $4,450.00
Now $3,950.00

Original 1930’s Gibson KK-11 tenor, converted to 5-string, and converted to flathead, with Tennessee 20 tonering.

Exc.(-) condition. Made by Gibson, marketed under the “Kel Kroydon” brand. This is the same banjo that Gibson named “Style 11.” All-original hardware in great condition, except for newer Presto tailpiece. Original pot metal 1-pc flange is in fine shape.

Double conversion �" This banjo was originally a tenor with a bead-brass tone-ring on the 3-ply Maple rim.

Now it is converted to 5-string banjo with a radiused Ebony neck, with Bella Voce inlay.

The bead ring was removed, and the 3-ply Maple rim was fitted with a Tennessee-20 flathead tonering.

All of the work was done professionally. Waverly tuners with ivoroid buttons are installed in the new neck. The color of this TB-11 was the dark blue color on the rim and resonator sidewall, and the neck color is a great match to the original color of the resonator and rim. The neck has a full profile with a 1 1/4″ width at nut
This banjo is really setup well, it sounds and plays great. Huge presence and great bottom end.

Comes with newer Gibson hardshell case.

Stelling Bellflower

Photo for Ad 124672

1983 Stelling Bellflower

Excellent, original condition! This is without a doubt the cleanest 35 year old banjo that I've ever encountered.

Black walnut neck and resonator, 3-ply maple rim, flathead tone ring, Stelling adjustable tailpiece, bound peghead, offset Stelling tuners, ebony fretboard, all nickel plated hardware, 5th string capo spikes at 7, 9-10, and Ludwig top frosted head.

Minimal fret wear showing. There are a few (3 - 4) hooks that show some age (plating is a bit dull on those). Geoff sells replacements for a buck each. I see no dents, dings, scratches or repairs.

Currently set-up with an 11/16" bridge and GHS 'Almost Medium' strings.

Original hard shell case is also in excellent condition.

Asking $2500. PayPal is accepted. Prefer to ship to the lower 48 states.

More pics available upon request.

Ca. 1920 Sovereign Melody Banjo By Oscar Schmidt

Photo for Ad 124652

Up for sale is a Sovereign melody banjo built sometime in the 1910s or 1920s. A melody banjo (also sometimes called a tango banjo) is basically a mandolin-banjo with four strings instead of eight; it can also be thought of as a short-necked tenor banjo. This one has a 13.75" scale and a nice, chunky neck which is very straight. The Sovereign brand was built by Oscar Schmidt; it represented their more expensive line, compared to the mid-priced Stella line. This banjo appears to be all original, though I can't be sure about the head and bridge, but they both look quite old. There is some finish loss on the dowel, but otherwise it's quite clean and just shows some light wear all around. There is some light wear to the frets but no buzzing and very good action with steel strings. The banjo comes with a non-original chipboard case.

Asking $350 including Paypal fees and shipping within the US. Click the link above for additional pictures.

New Deering Sierra Mahogany

Photo for Ad 124594

$2,699.00

Case: Original Deering-branded case

Description: Lowe Vintage is an authorized dealer for Deering Banjo Company! From Mr. Greg Deering himself:

“The Deering Sierra banjo is truly the flagship of our entire line! How is it that this is so? Well I’ll tell you. The pot assembly of the Sierra, the violin grade maple 3 ply rim, the -06- tone ring, the one piece zinc flange, the notched tension hoop, the Deering tail piece and armrest are exactly the same as our whole line all the way up to the Gabriella, with just a few exceptions. The only exceptions are; the Golden Era has a different zinc flange, the Hartford has a Grenadillo wood tone ring, the Terry Baucom has an -06- tone ring that is just a few ounces lighter than the standard -06- tone ring, and the Tenbrooks banjos have the Swiss Jens Kruger tone ring.

When I first introduced the Sierra I kept the cost down by keeping the cosmetics simple. I put the money into the pot assembly. I wanted to build a top professional banjo at a price that I could have afforded when I was a kid going to the music store on my way home from school everyday.

With the implementation of new technology we have been able to make the Sierra exquisitely beautiful without raising the price. I have been greatly inspired by the art work of the old masters of the Boston banjo era from the turn of the last century. With this inspiration in my blood I have brought art to the Sierra that is usually reserved for banjos costing much, much more.

The Sierra is truly a professional masterpiece of both sound and art at a price that is within your reach."

Sincerely,
Greg Deering

Deering Goodtime 19-Fret Tenor Banjo w/ Gigbag

Photo for Ad 124498

This tenor banjo is basically new- it has about 10 hours total of playtime on it, and it needs to go to somebody who will give it some playtime. Great for a mando picker looking to get a banjo sound without having to learn the banjo.

Comes with a Deering gigbag that is missing a plastic piece (easily fixed by a carabiner) to make it wearable like a backpack.

Deering sells these banjos for $549, and the gig bags for $95

Asking $500 for the banjo and the gigbag. Buyer pays shipping.

Gibson Ub1 Banjo Ukulele Banjolele

Photo for Ad 124458

Asking $650, or make offer. This Baby Gibson UB1 banjo uke has amazing sound for such a small instrument. This is an excellent playing and sounding example of the legendary late 1920's Gibson banjolele. You will be hard pressed to find a nicer playable vintage Gibson banjo ukulele. New fluorocarbon Living Water Strings sit on a replacement bridge, and hold a great tune. Tuners, tail piece, banjo head, and Kalamazoo sticker appear original and intact. This was made for export, with Made in USA cleanly embossed on the back of the headstock. Metal work has not been cleaned up, but in good condition for a 90+ year old instrument. Missing one J-hook which does not effect the play and is easily to replace. Original coffin case is included in rough condition but complete, hardware in good condition. Currently shipping from South Africa, but will hand carry to US in June and available from there as well.
