Tubaphone  Change text size for readability...  Print This Page

00:26The A. C. Fairbanks Tubaphone was developed in 1909 as a top flight professional banjo that produced a strong, loud tone that could fill a concert hall. It uses a square tube with a heavy wire bead around the top as a resonator. The tube has holes drilled into the inside of the ring. Tubaphones, like Whyte Laydies, are among the most sought after instruments by old time banjo players.
