The tenor banjo may have one string less than its 5-string cousins, but that doesn't make it any less of an instrument. In fact, it's got a history that goes back to the early 1900s where it found a natural home in early jazz music. From there, it moved into the "Dixieland" jazz genre, which gave it a long tenure that's still ongoing today. Of course, there's a lot more to tenor banjos than that, and they're easy to adapt to Irish jigs and reels, not to mention plenty of other folk music as well. The Deering 4-string tenor banjos in this section are great examples of instruments ready to take on all of that music and more, so if you're looking for a versatile rhythm instrument to try your hand at, you're in the right place.

As with any other banjo, the first step to choosing your ideal 4-string tenor banjo is to settle on what, specifically, you're looking for in an instrument. If that's something straightforward and traditional, then the Deering Goodtime 17-Fret Tenor 4-String Banjo is a good starting point. This lightweight instrument is domestically built in Deering's California factory, and makes a perfect choice for the casual or beginning player. On the other hand, maybe you're a more experienced picker in need of a professional-level resonator-equipped model. If so, the higher end of Deering's lineup will probably resound with you, including instruments like the Deering Boston 17-Fret Tenor Banjo and the Deering Sierra 17-Fret Tenor Banjo.

These are just a few examples of instruments that show Deering at its best, and there's no doubt that even the most hard-working professional pickers can find something here that's able to keep up with them. So when you're looking to ditch the fifth string and go tenor, you'll be off to a good start with one of these Deering 4-string tenor banjos on your wish list. The choice is yours to go for a traditional sound or blaze your own trail taking the tenor banjo into uncharted territory - either way, a good instrument at your side is a must-have.
