GUEST,Nancy Help: Irish Tenor Banjo (21) RE: Help: Irish Tenor Banjo 03 Aug 02

Hi, I'm a fiddler in Calif. who wanted to give a 4-string Irish Tenor Banjo a try, but hardly anyone here had even heard of them. So I did a little research and bought an inexpensive Gold Tone.....I love it! Try this


It's $299.00 at this site and when I bought it, there was free shipping. I had found another one just like it on other sites and music stores and they asked $400.00 for the same instrument. You'll have a blast playing it (especially if you already play the fiddle or mandolin, voila! you can already play!). There are other banjos there too, look for the Irish Tenor Cripple Creek Model. If you want, you can spend more money on another banjo later when you decide if it's a fun instrument for you.


PS Don't know where you are, but I spend ALOT of time explaining why I don't have 5-strings on my banjo:)
