Description
 
The Recording King Dirty 30's Tenor Banjo brings 100 years of history into the present, road-ready vibe of the Dirty 30's line. The tenor banjo first came to prominence in the early 1900's, and its C-G-D-A tuning is especially well suited for folk, Celtic and Dixieland music. The tenor is a unique banjo for players looking to add a traditional vibe to their sound, and the perfect crossover instrument for mandolin, violin, viola and cello players. The Dirty 30's Tenor Banjo has the same road-ready styling as the rest of the Dirty 30's guitars and banjos. The narrow 19-fret neck is a pleasure to hold, and the 23 scale delivers the perfect combination of feel and crisp clarity. The open-back rim features 16 brackets holding down a REMO Fiberskyn head for the classic period-correct tenor sound.

5 of 5 banjo set up and shipping September 22, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Medford, WI United States  
I was surprised when the banjo arrived in 3 days. Other than standing up the bridge and tuning it, there wasn't any other setup needed. Wish I had more time to play it.
  Thanks, Mike

4 of 5 Great deal February 2, 2017
Reviewer: Rodney from TX United States  
I've been playing 5 string for a while and I thought I'd try an inexpensive 4 string tenor for some Irish tunes. For the money this is a great little banjo with typical Recording King quality and fingering. Shipping was very fast and price very reasonable...thanks guys

5 of 5 Excellent value! Great sound! February 15, 2015
Reviewer: Warren Allred from Alpine, CA United States  
What a really nice banjo for the price!  I am playing it in both standard Tenor tuning (C, G, D, A  with .010  .012  .021  .031 strings) and Irish tuning (G, D, A, E with .012  .016  .024  .036 strings) and it plays and sounds great.  Very nice fret board and excellent finish.

I like it enough that I may buy a few more of their models to have around!
