OVERVIEW

Great for old timey, Dixieland or your own ideas.

A great recording tenor banjo with resonator for sound projection, the Boston 19 fret tenor works for dixieland jazz, 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 Jazz 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 then you won't get one for the cost of a Boston.
