I'm looking at an old one here. Wondering what the real old ones sound like.

I’ll bite, what is a “Lancaster?”

I think he means Huber Lancaster.

I don't think there is any such thing as a "real(ly) old" Huber Lancaster. If you're looking at one, how does it sound? Write to Steve and get an exact mfg. date.

Friend of mine bought one from Steve at IBMA Louisville (Galt House) roughly around 2000 or so. Fine banjo.

This one is about 76 years old. It's parked 2 miles from where I live and the sound is amazing:

I was resisting the temptation to post a video of a Lancaster bomber, and, by gosh, Bart Veerman couldn't resist posting a link to a photo.

Anybody want to hear Burt Lancaster singing?

I'll reckon that a newer Huber Lancaster with an HR30 ring and an engineered rim sounds better than most older ones.

I'll also reckon that a newer "non-Truetone" Lancaster probably sounds pretty close to what the older ones sound like.

If you're interested in Huber, the primary considerations I would be concerned with are "condition" and "Truetone v. non-Truetone" ...

I was ultimately able to hear the banjo I'm considering and it definitely has the Huber characteristics I'm looking for!
