Banjo Q&A

What is a banjo resonator and what does it accomplish?

A resonator is the back, bowl-shaped part of a banjo that helps to reflect the sound out to your audience, thus making the banjo sound louder and brighter. This is in contrast to an open-back banjo, which does not have a resonator.


What is the difference in sound between a resonator banjo and an open-back banjo?

Resonator banjos project the sound toward the audience with more ringing (resonation). Open-back banjos have a more mellow and softer sound, but are sometimes preferred by banjo players of different play styles. Open-back banjos are preferred by old-time clawhammer banjo players, while newer bluegrass players sometimes prefer the louder ringing sound of a resonator banjo.


What banjo should a beginner buy?

We always recommend beginners pick up an instrument that they will proudly play and learn on. For this reason, we recommend banjos which provide a good value, without being cost prohibitive.  Fortunately, some big names in banjos have continued to manufacture impeccable, affordable banjos which are perfect for beginners. We recommend beginners look at purchasing the following banjos:


What is the most common type of banjo

The most common type of banjo, especially in the US, is the 5-string banjo. The 5th string of the 5-string banjo is called the "thumb string" or "drone string" because of the clawhammer technique of thumb-picking the 5th string in syncopation with the other 4 strings.


How is a standard 5-string banjo tuned?

5-string banjos are most commonly tuned in "Open G" tuning. Starting from the 5th string to the 1st string, the notes are tuned G, D, G, B, D.
