925 Paramount Style B Tenor Banjo, Wm L Lange, manufacturer. Here is one right out of the closet! Original condition, well played and well cared for, this is an absolute time capsule, It has the Style B fingerboard and “Style B” is engraved in pearl inlay in the center of the peg head. Other features include 11 inch head, Rogers 5 star calfskin head, Page geared tuners, Paramount locking tailpiece and flange, nickel plated metal parts, original head.
 
Inside the head is the name of the original owner as well as the name "Jos. A. Rogers Jr." The Rogers head came from the Rogers drum company. They're still in biz, but don't make heads any more. Back in the day, he used to sign the banjo heads.

Just like Remo today, the banjo heads were a small part of their sales- way many more went on drums than banjos.
