The McBrides DBJ-34 Tenor Banjo is a fantastic Banjo for the beginner. Its one step above the cheaper tenor banjos that are on the market and that step up contributes hugely to a good tone and solid tuning. This Banjo has an aluminium pot.
The pot is the drum part of the banjo and to get that classic banjo tone the skin needs to be mounted onto metal. Some cheaper banjos have an all wooden pot and this leads to a dull tone that isnt inspiring to play. In short this is the ideal instrument for a beginner be there an adult or child.
