Resonator Tenor Banjo

without comments

A resonator tenor banjo combines the resonator’s unique sound creation method with the tenor banjo, a special type of banjo that’s slightly different from a standard one.  A tenor banjo usually has a shorter neck and is often played with a plectrum.  It also only has four strings as opposed to the more popular five string banjo.  This type of banjo was popular in the 1900s.  It’s generally played for chordal accompaniment now.  Generally, a tenor banjo is tuned like a mandola or a viola, although some tune it so that it allows them to use it more like a fiddle or mandolin.  The tenor banjo has a great volume and timbre.

When enhanced with a resonator, the tenor banjo becomes much louder.  What is unfortunate is that finding a resonator tenor banjo can be somewhat difficult since there are few companies that produce them.  One company that does, however, is called Rover.  Rover makes a number of resonator tenor banjos, including the RB-25T.  This instrument has a slim neck, a powerfully loud resonator, and is lightweight.  It’s also very reasonably priced: the RB-25T has a suggested retail price of only $259.99.
