Tubaphone ???

Posted by Bill Baer on Monday, August 15, 2011

I own a  Vega Tubaphone made in the late 20's. Yes it has a "modern" neck on it.

To  me this is the "Holy Grail" of open back banjos. I have played newer brands but nothing

else comes close in comparison. The sound is just where I want it. Anybody got an opinion as

to what I could replace it with if it is ever lost or stolen.

The same thing, as there are plenty of 20's Vega tubbies and Whyte Laydies around with "modern" necks that come up for sale in the BHO classifieds.
