Gibson Catalog 1927

Renowned for their superior craftsmanship, the tonal quality, and the impressive volume they produced, Gibson banjos of this era were synonymous with the esteemed Mastertone series.

This lineup featured a spectrum of models, each tailored with varying levels of ornamentation and capabilities to accommodate an array of preferences and financial considerations.

The Mastertones set themselves apart through their groundbreaking design features such as the “tone ring” and flange constructions, which were pivotal for their robust sound projection and clear tonal delivery – characteristics that were critically important for piercing through the ensemble sounds of the early jazz era.
