The Super-Paramount Banjo – A Masterpiece from every angle.
Its tone-amplifying body construction is entirely revolutionary, bringing advanced ideas to the tone producing structure of the Banjo.
New devices for creating chambers for amplification of tone – together with additional tone channels for emitting sustained tones of greater resonance and power – are here introduced as the greatest of Banjo achievements.
Super-Paramount has a triple acousticon structure for projecting the amplified tone forward, including a large convex all-wood resonator back for the fullness of bass notes and a scientific alloy metal center acousticon of marvelous ringing quality for brilliancy of the treble.
Super-Paramount is built for the most exacting professional requirements. Its action is exceedingly facile, offering a responsiveness and ease for technical passages that is unequalled.
The new Tone Modifier or
Vibrato Mute is an exclusive feature. There is no limit to the beauty or the variety of vibrant musical
effects that it can be made to produce. The vibrato is operated by a gentle and
easy wrist action. When the full muted tone is wanted, the deft pressure of a
button on top of the Tone Modifier engages the mute and bridge in a truly
sweet-voiced, full muted effect that cannot change the pitch of the instrument.
