Goodtime 17-fret Tenor Banjo
Made in America. This banjo can be tuned in 5ths just like a cello or viola (C,G.D.A,A). It is an excellent instrument that can be used as a crossover instrument by string players. One customer described it as a “really great instrument with a great quality build and a wonderful loud and rich sound.” The instrument is easy to use with its small fretboard, thin neck, and light weight. The Irish G,D.A.E tuning was chosen because I can use the chords, tunes, and patterns I have already learned on the mandolin. I am able to play the instrument with just a little bit more stretch and more movement for my old fingers. These banjos are beautiful and I am very impressed.
The Goodtime openback banjo is made in America at Deering Banjo Factory in California. It weighs approximately 4 pounds and can be used for camping, hiking, or just about any other purpose.
It is light enough to hold and play, and the banjo is ideal for beginners. The banjo’s length is reduced to 32 inches by its shorter 17 fret neck.
