The Celt Banjo
Our Celt Tenor Banjo is by far the most popular tenor banjo for students and intermediate customers. 

The McNeela Celt Banjo has recently been upgraded (January 2023) for an even better playing experience:

What’s New? We’ve added planetary tuners for faster tuning mid-play; planetary tuners provide even tension while turning smoothly. We’ve also upgraded the rim to wood for richer acoustics and a more premium look.

This quality tenor banjo has been carefully designed and manufactured with precision, and comes professionally setup so it produces the perfect sound.
