This is the same banjo as the Goldtone IT 250 but with an added resonator. It cost a bit more this way but if you think you would like a resonator is much cheaper to get it at the same time as when you buy the banjo. Ordering separately is more expensive plus shipping costs and having to install it.
The short scale tenor is designed for playing in the common keys of traditional music. Played by Jerry Cowan, a street musician from Dublin, Ireland. This is an excellent addition to any tenor player's arsenal of instruments.
The IT-250R is the best irish tenor for the money, designed for the tone sought after in Irish music. The banjo has excellent tone and volume.
The Excellent tone and volume is a result of a quality White Ladye tone ring, thin maple rim, maple neck and quality components. MOP headstock inlay, hearts and flower position markers, two way adjustable truss rod, and chrome plated hardware are standard equipment
The popularity of the Irish Tenor is increasing dramatically as mandolinists now can include a four string banjo in their instrument collection. The IT-250 is designed for a plunky tone sought after in Irish music. The17 fret neck utilizes heavier strings and is tuned GDAE octave below mandolin.
