In the 1920’s The Rudolph Wurlitzer Company of Cincinnati, Ohio advertised the “Howard” tenor-banjo outfit for $49.00.  The well-made professional instrument which was supplied complete with a fully shaped case was made for the company by the Fred Gretsch Mfg. Co.


In advertisements for this tenor-banjo it was also stated that the outfit could also be furnished “in five-string or plectrum models” to order.
