In the last two or three weeks Gryphon has listed three Orpheum 5-strings, one with a Bob Anderson neck. One, I infer, has been sold, as it is no longer among their listed banjos. I surmise that a player/collector is selling off these instruments as three Orpheums in such a short time is very unusual. I have no interest in Orpheum banjos, but any who do might want to keep tabs on the Gryphon listings.. More could be on the way.
The recording with the irreplaceable Miles Krassen clawhammer book featured an Orpheum, I believe. A wonderful sound. Intermountain in Utah often has had one or two and they sometimes appear at Greg Boyd Instruments in Montana as well.
