Short-scale Tenor Banjos (& Short-scale Tenor Banjo Outfits)


NEW FEATURE! - FOR A HARD CASE / GIG BAG OUTFIT, GO TO THE BOTTOM OF THE LISTING FOR THE INSTRUMENT YOU WISH TO BUY...


The outfits include lots of useful accessories (everything you need to get started, in fact!).


Any tenor banjo can be ordered in left-hand format at no extra cost. You get a left-handed top nut & bridge, a set of position markers down the right-hand side of the neck and the armrest positioned on the right-hand side. The banjos are otherwise identical to the standard right-handed versions illustrated here.


The tenor banjos are mostly illustrated & priced here as resonator models; there are few open-back versions listed although we are working on this.


Many of these banjos can be built in open-back format to special order if required; generally at a lower price than the resonator equivalent. Please phone for details if you're interested in an open-back version of any of these resonator models.


Grafton Gem #2 short-scale open-back tenor banjo

Grafton Gem #2 short-scale open-back tenor banjo - 245.00

Equally, it will work very nicely for a more advanced player who wants a ruggedly-built banjo that will withstand the rigours of travelling but still perform well at sessions ...........

Grafton Popular #2 short-scale open-back tenor banjo

Grafton Popular #2 short-scale open-back tenor banjo - 295.00

We've been making the resonator version of this banjo for a few years; it became apparent that there was a demand for an open-back version (a lot of customers were playing their banjos with the resonator removed!!). This is a conventionally-styled short-scale tenor banjo with great tuning stability, good action, proper projection and a pleasant tone. In truth, it's much like the Gem #2 except that it has a normal "banjo-style" neck with planetary banjo tuners.


The Popular #2 open-back short-scale tenor banjo works admirably ............ at a price that most beginners can manage (well below other models that don't have anything like the same stability or performance)

Grafton Pop #2 Arch-top flat plate resonator short-scale tenor banjo.

Grafton Clipper #4

Grafton Clipper #4 "White Lady" short scale open back tenor banjo - 725.00

Another serious new product in the Grafton range - a new banjo which blends many of the features of the early "Vega" & "Gibson" short-scale tenors but adds the virtues of modern technology with a double-action truss rod in the neck twin co-ordinator rods in the rim.


As compared to the "#4 Tubaphone" below, this is a different but equally attractive blending of classic sound with modern performance. Obviously, this banjo features a "White Lady" tone ring- but it also has the heavy bracket band to hold the bracket shoes so that they aren't bolted through the rim. The rim itself is a ¾" 3-ply maple construction so that it is extremely solid.


All Grafton Clipper #4 and #3.5 models feature hand turned and hand finished french polished rims that are produced here in our UK factory.


Overall, this banjo is seriously well-built & durable. The price is a little lower than other similar offerings and it's a very much better banjo than most other intermediate-/professional-level short-scale tenors.

A serious new product in the Grafton range - a new banjo which reproduces many of the features of the classic Vega Style M Tubaphone but adds the virtues of modern technology with a double-action truss rod inthe neck and adjustable twin co-ordinator rods in the rim.
