The mahogany construction and bronze tone ring makes this banjo suitable for all tenor banjo styles and gives you a warm, bright and cutting tone. We set up each banjo with a precise action and can supply either ‘drop’ Irish tuned to G,D,A,E or jazz C.G,D,A tuning.
The strings that we fit are the highest quality Hand-Crafted steel plain and phosphor bronze wound, or nickel strings if you choose otherwise. An excellent all-round tenor banjo that is suitable for home ‘pleasure playing’, session or stage situations. It is a very attractive looking banjo, with nice diamond inlay work.
The Pot Assembly… The 279.40mm (11”) diameter rim is built from laminate maple, the rim thickness is 9.525mm (3/8”). The 11” brass tone ring is fitted to the outer edge of the rim. Chrome flange plates are fitted with 24 bracket hooks to give firm and even tension on the tension hoop. An engraved armrest is fitted. The tailpiece is height adjustable. All metalwork is chrome plated to a high standard.
A milky 11” diameter Remo ‘weatherking’ plastic head is fitted (top side coated) along with an ebony tipped 15.87mm (5/8”) maple bridge. Four chrome-plated resonator thumbscrews are provided to attach the resonator. The resonator is constructed from mahogany with black binding. It has a convex back and is fully bound in black colour binding. The mahogany is stained in the pre-war ‘Gibson-style’ and is clear lacquered and highly polished.
The Neck Assembly… The neck is attached to the pot assembly with double ‘Gibson-style’ lag bolts and one coordinating rim rod which give you the facility to alter the ‘action’ of banjo to suit your particular style of playing relative to the strings of your choice. The neck is constructed from solid mahogany, it is also fitted with an internal adjustable steel truss rod.
The rosewood 19 fret fingerboard is fully bound to match the resonator and is inlaid with vintage style pearl ‘Diamond’ inlays and small white side dot position markers at the 3rd, 7th, 10th, 12th, 15th, 17th and19th frets. The nickel silver fretwork is perfectly positioned, rounded and polished for smooth playing. The nut is precisely cut and filed for a comfortable string action at the first position.
The peg head (hedstock) is a traditional design and also has a ‘Tanglewood’ gold script logo. A white edged black plastic ‘bell’ shape truss rod cover is fitted. A set of high quality ‘vintage style’ ivory coloured planetary-geared tuners are fitted to give positive and trouble free tuning. The tuners are chrome plated to match the hardware of the pot assembly. The neck is clear lacquered and highly polished to match the resonator and body.
