Perfect 4-String Irish-Gaelic Tenor Banjo

BJ304GT
£294.00

If you're a fan of an Irish jig, this is the banjo for you. 

This 'Perfect' Irish-Gaelic 4-string banjo features a shorter-scale, 17 fret neck. This shorter-than-usual scale is ideal for playing the fast, complex fiddle melodies found in much traditional Irish and Gaelic music. 

Equipped with a mahogany resonator, an aluminium rim with a Remo WeatherKing head and a mahogany neck, the BJ304 Irish Tenor Banjo lends itself to a speedier playing style feel whilst feeling little lighter on the fingers. 

 

Perfect 4-String Tenor Banjo

BJ304
£294.00

'Perfect' for the newer player with an easy-playing feel. 

Your ideal entry-point into the exciting world of 4-string, tenor banjos, the 'Perfect' series were first created by Messrs Barnes & Mullins at the start of the 1900s and formed the very core of the early B&M instrument offering.

This Barnes & Mullins BJ304 'Perfect' tenor banjo delivers a warm and controlled sound with an easy playing feel well suited to all, even absolute beginners. Tonally, you can expect a pleasant and mature response when played with fingers or a plectrum. 

 
 

 

Empress 4-String Tenor Banjo

BJ504BW
£622.00

A real head turner, ideal for the more accomplished player. 

This beauty features a wonderfully figured burl walnut resonator with a spellbinding marbled grain pattern, combined with a classic walnut rim and neck. Tonally articulate thanks to the walnut tonewoods, the Empress will impress visually and aurally at every turn. 

The Empress models are named in honour of the 'RMS Empress of Ireland' steam ship which sank on Canada's St Lawrence River in May 1914 with the loss of over 1000 lives. Sadly, Mr Albert Mullins was one of the lost souls that day.
