4 String Banjos

Promenade Music generally stocks three types of 4 string Banjo; the 17 fret tenor, 19 fret tenor and 22 fret plectrum model. The 17 fret Tenor Banjo is generally played in Celtic, Irish & Folk music. It has a short neck and its standard tuning is G,D,A,E like the Mandolin and Violin so it's a great crossover instrument for those players. The 19 fret Tenor Banjo is generally played in Dixieland & Traditional Jazz music and it's standard tuning is C,G,D,A. The 22 fret Plectrum Banjo is a similar scale length to a standard 5 string banjo and is also used mainly in Dixieland & Traditional Jazz but some Celtic, Irish & Folk players also use them. The standard Jazz tuning is C,G,B,D but often guitarists will use them and tune them to D,G,B,E, the top four strings of the guitar which is known as Chicago tuning. When Celtic, Irish & Folk players use them, they generally stick to their standard G,D,A,E tuning like they would on their 17 fret instrument.
