About Banjos

Charming and charismatic, banjos are all over American music from the advent of recorded music to contemporary chart toppers such as Taylor Swift, Kasey Musgraves and Mumford and Sons. The banjo has a distinctive percussive sound due to the fact they often use a drum head as the resonant membrane.

Most commonly associated with American roots such as country, folk and bluegrass music, the banjo comes in a few different varieties. The classic banjo is the five-string banjo. The construction of 5 string banjos can either be open-back, ‘frying pan’ style or closed-back with a wooden body like an acoustic guitar. Open back banjos are percussive and brash sounding. Closed-back banjos are much warmer and polished sounding.

Other banjo types include the tenor or ‘Irish’ banjo, 6 string banjo or banjo ukulele. The tenor banjo is a smaller, higher pitched banjo. The 6 string banjo and banjo ukulele are essentially a guitar and ukulele, respectively, but with the body of a banjo rather than a wooden body. We stock banjos from Barnes & Mullins BanjosOzarkDeering banjos and more.

Why Should I Choose a Banjo?

  • Charming, charismatic sound
  • Perfect for country, folk and blues
  • Different styles available

Frequently Asked Questions about Banjos

Question: How many strings are there on a banjo?
A banjo most commonly has 5 strings but there are variations which have four strings, like a tenor banjo, or six strings.
Question: How hard is it to play the banjo?
Like any instrument it’ll take you an afternoon to learn your first few chords and a lifetime to master. The banjo requires different picking techniques to a guitar so that is the time consuming thing to learn properly.
Question: Which is easier to learn: banjo or ukulele?
The ukulele is easier to learn than the banjo. This is not necessarily because the banjo is hard to learn, it’s just less forgiving than a ukulele. The ukulele’s small size, soft nylon strings and quiet tone make it an ideal instrument for beginners. Banjos aren’t particularly difficult to learn but they are notoriously loud which might put off the casual player.
