History:

The Triple-X banjo is a great quality, cleverly-designed, unique-sounding, resonator banjo made by William L. Lange Co. exclusively for Henry Stadlmair Co. in the mid 1920’s in New York, New York. This was Stadlmair’s house brand banjo. It was intended for the mid-priced tenor banjo market in the waning days of the tenor banjo craze in the mid-1920s. The production and marketing of the Triple-X was quite ephemeral and was only produced from early 1924 until late 1926. During this brief period it was marketed heavily in the U.S. and Canada, and possibly Britain and Europe. Triple-Xs were said to be made in tenor, plectrum, five string, and banjo-mandolin types. Style A 17 fret tenor is the most common form found today.

This Banjo is in good condition standard signs of wear and age. Minor nicks/dings can be found throughout the instrument which is normal for its age. the Metal hardware on this banjo is tarnishing. However, can be mostly restored. The frets & fingerboard on this instrument are in relatively good shape and all original inlays are intact. The head on this banjo appears to most likely be original as well. However, does have tear located about 1" from the left side of the rim, the tear measures about 1/4" in length and can be seen in photo above.
