The Celt Banjo 19 Fret

Due to its performance and ease of play this is by far the most popular tenor banjo amongst our traditional Irish music 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.

The Celt 2 Banjo is a 4-string tenor banjo (19 Fret) made by McNeela Instruments. It's a closed back 24 bracket banjo with excellent traditional tone.
