    Re: Tenor banjo help

    A new head is the way to go, to get the best sound out of it it needs to be really really tight. Some people tune the head up to the pitch of A, some say you should have it one quarter of a turn from...

    Re: 2019 Tune-A-Week Project

    In Ireland I see lots of players that use that flexible thumb picking style particularly banjo players & nearly all of them are great players! I think it comes from starting off picking tunes rather...

    Re: Fan-fret mandocello build

    @tonydxn. I'm very interested in the whole fan-fret concept & I don't see it as being overly complex, but I'm only a player not a builder! Alastair Hay of Emerald Guitars in Donegal is building me a...

    Re: High Quality Short Scale Tenor Guitar?

    I dend to think the opposite. Most of the mass produced tenors are built around the traditional CGDA in my opinion body size wise at least. My first Tenor the Harley Benton is great in CGDA &...

    Re: How do you progress on tenor?

    I think that it isn't that important 'what' you practice. In my opinion it's super important 'how' you practice. Practice will make you better, it will make you better at your good habits &...

    Re: Tenor ukulele for a CBOM player?

    Some food for thought, go over to the Tenor guitar threads & see what cornfield has posted recently regarding putting nylons on banjos, that's one way of giving an audience a different flavour. I've...

    This my not be helpful for you but I have a Soares'y Tenor resonator guitar (no pickup). It is a good quality instrument! I sent it up to Emerald guitars for them to copy the neck profile on my...
  12. Re: Ordered a custom tenor from Davy Stuart

    Rather than start a new thread when this is totally related; I just spoke to my luthier, Alistair at Emerald Guitars in Donegal & put the specs together for a GDAE Carbon Fibre Tenor. It'll be a...

  16. Re: Ordered a custom tenor from Davy Stuart

    Another consideration my be to get some Hannabach series 890 strings for children's 1/8th classical guitar strings. I ordered 6 sets of them yesterday from amazon to try GDAE on a 17" scale Tenor...
  17. Re: Ordered a custom tenor from Davy Stuart

    18" scale tuned GDAE on normal steel strings seems a bit short to me. I've tried gypsy guitar strings on a 16" concert banjo-uke that sounds ok if that's any help.
  18. Re: Ordered a custom tenor from Davy Stuart

    Nice work! At 18" are you going for CGDA tuning?

    I had enough trouble trying to add the photo, I haven't a clue how to do a sound clip. It does sound great though, I brought it to a session in Doolin (Co Clare) on the weekend & within 30 seconds...

    What should I call this?

    This is an idea I put up on a previous post. The idea is to split the neck so the 23" tenor GDAE strings can easily be strummed separately. The 25 1/2" bottom FC bass strings are easily...

    Re: Left hand tenor

    That's an interesting guitar, I'm finding it hard to tell at which fret is square across the neck, maybe the 7th. It would be nice to know what the scale lengths are!
