  • Image 1 of Gold Tone It-250 Openback Irish Tenor Banjo - SKU# GTIT250 : Product Type Tenor & Plectrum Banjos : Elderly Instruments
    The IT-250 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 bodhran, pipes and fiddles. Any mandolinist will find it easy to switch off to the IT-250 and add an extra dimension of authenticity to their music.
    The exact appearance of this item may vary.
