Gold Tone IT-250 Irish Tenor Banjo, 2016

Gold Tone IT-250 Irish Tenor Banjo, 2016

The Irish Tenor banjo is specially adapted to Irish and other Celtic music styles, pitched low to co-exist with the Bodhran, pipes and fiddles. The Gold Tone IT-250 Irish Tenor model offers a quality instrument at a reasonable price. The seventeen-fret IT-250’s short scale neck uses heavier strings and is tuned to GDAE, an octave below the mandolin. This setup is in wide use by many traditional Irish musicians because it provides the plunky tone that works so well with the bodhran, pipes and fiddles found in Celtic music ensembles.

❌ SOLD ❌ Ludwig Ambassador Tenor Banjo Walnut, 1926

The Ludwig Ambassador tenor banjo is an example of a business recognizing opportunity. The Ludwig Drum Company started in 1909 and by the early 1920’s realized that banjos are closely related to drums, and offered a range of models. However, by the early 1930’s as banjos started to wane, Ludwig moved back to its core business – and is still a respected name in drum manufacturing.
