With its short neck and 4 steel strings, the tenor banjo is tuned like a viola and played plectrum style. It was mainly used for Dixieland, ragtime and early swing music.
Manufacturing a variety of mandolin and banjo strings, La Bella has a long history associated with the folk music scene. Grammy award winner and American folk legend, Pete Seeger has always relied on La Bella’s twelve-string acoustic guitar strings and five-string banjo sets.
