Advantages of a 22 Fret Banjo

mcneela-banjo-workshop.jpgDue to its larger size, the strings are wound to a higher tension than a 17 fret or 19 fret banjo, creating a brighter tone and more volume. 

The 22 fret fingerboard offers endless opportunities for new repertoire and playing styles.

This is a quality banjo that will serve you well at every stage of your musical journey, right to advanced level.
