GUEST,Nancy seeking irish banjo sound bytes (13) RE: seeking irish banjo sound bytes 25 Jul 00


Ah! This is a favorite subject of mine. I have searched Sacramento to Oregon and cannot find an "Irish-Tenor" banjo to save my life! I would like to play one before I buy one:)

I have yet to try San Franciso, but you can be sure I will if I get down there this fall. A question Jon, is an "Irish" tenor actually a different banjo from a "tenor" banjo, or is it just a tenor banjo with four strings tuned to EADG? I was always too embarrassed to ask before, but what the heck, let's throw caution to the wind!

No one in the music stores here seemed to have even heard of one, five-strings rule in Californy I guess! Thanks, Nancy
