Supetone was one of the brand names Sears used in the 1920s and 1930s for their music related products. (They also sold Supertone records and phonographs.) This particular tenor banjo was most likely made by Stromberg-Voisinet, a chicago-based manufacturer that later became Kay. This was a modestly priced in its day, but it’s a well-made, playable banjo. It’s quite playable and the vine inlay in the fretboard is in excellent shape. It has a set of Page tuning machines. The one odd feature about this banjo is that it has a channel carved into the back of the neck, an original feature we have seen before and still marvel at. All in all, this is fine banjo for a player looking to get in to the tenor banjo world at a less expensive prive. Includes a recent vintage padded gig bag.
