Tuners 

Tuning the Banjo - We carry the best models of electronic tuners for the banjo. We have clip on tunerstuners with both lights and needles, and tuners with metronomes all at discounted prices and made for the most accurate tuning of your banjo.
I've included beginner banjo instruction on the notes to tune a banjo too. I listed several of the most common ways to tune a banjo depending on what type of banjo it is. I included 5-string banjo in standard bluegrass G tuning as well as C and D tuning, 4-string tenor and plectrum tunings, old time banjo tuning like double C and G modal and the low open E Banjo tuning like John Hartford used.
