    Default Unusual 20” banjo style tenor

    Quite a big sound as the top is actually quite a big piece of wood!
    It will be going to a DGBE player who wanted a steel string banjo with a wood top.
    It has a 14” diameter.

    Nice, I like it. Looks like there is quite a bit of arch induced into the top and the bridge is in the sweet spot. What type of bracing did you use?

    Sound clips?

    A bunch of stuff with four strings

    No sound clips although I might try some 5th string on it before it moves house.
    Yes quite a tall carved arch but very slight bracing Click image for larger version.
