With that wonderful plunky Irish tone.
The Goldtone IT-250 is a short scale tenor is designed for playing in the common keys of traditional music. Played by Jerry Cowan, a street musician from Dublin, Ireland. This is an excellent addition to any tenor player's arsenal of instruments.
Excellent tone and volume is a result of a quality White Ladye tone ring, thin maple rim, maple neck and quality components. MOP headstock inlay, hearts and flower position markers, two way adjustable truss rod, and chrome plated hardware are standard equipment
The popularity of the Irish Tenor is increasing dramatically as mandolinists now can include a four-string banjo in their instrument collection. The IT-250 is designed for a plunky tone sought after in Irish music. The 17 fret neck utilizes heavier strings and is tuned GDAE octave below mandolin.
