- Customer Reviews (0)
A great recording tenor banjo with resonator for sound projection, the Boston 17-fret tenor works for Irish, traditional jazz, or any style you like to play. Tuned in fifths, C,G,D,A it is easily fingered by mandolin or violin players because the chord fingering is the same. This lighter weight Irish banjo is easy to play and incredibly durable for years of enjoyment! The innovative steel rim construction of the drum provides a clear, crisp banjo tone that rings like a bell, records well and plays easily. There are higher-end banjos out there that do have better, warmer sound, but they you won’t get one for the cost of a Boston.
