    Picked up a paragon in real nice shape. Was told that machine has been in same family since bought new.
    Is there a volume control for the speaker? Game is very loud.

    Welcome to the crazy fun addiction of pinball. Start eating bologna sandwiches and saving your money for the next one. Enjoy!!

    Congratulations! Volume is adjustable, you just have to find the controls. It's probably inside the cabinet near the door.

    Volume control is a small (usually blue) potentiometer on the sound (small) board in the backbox
