Note: The Tenor Banjo has been discontinued. Musicmakers produced this Tenor Banjo from 2014-2023
Three tuning options make our Tenor Banjo a very versatile instrument!
Are you a guitar player? Try the Chicago tuning. It is tuned just like a guitar but is missing the 2 lowest strings. So guitar players feel right at home with this tuning.
Do you play mandolin or violin? The Irish Tenor tuning has the exact same notes, just an octave lower. So anything you can play on the mandolin or violin will translate directly into this tuning.
The Standard Tenor tuning is the same as a mandola or viola. This tuing is fun for mandolin and violin players too. The fingerings, scales, and chord shapes are all the same, only you get to play in some different keys.
