ODE Tenors are offered in both 11″ and 12″ body size, with 19 frets, 22.125” scale, and 1.28″ nut width. The 11” tenors are generally brighter and crisper, with more punch, while our 12” models emphasize bass, depth, and a warmer tone. Every ODE Tenor banjo can be set up in our shop for either Irish or Jazz tuning. Jazz Tenors are normally tuned CGDA, the same as the mandola or viola. Irish tenors have heavier strings and are generally tuned the same as the mandolin or violin, GDAE. Irish players tend to use both 11” and 12” models while Jazz players tend to prefer the brighter 11” body size. Priced from $1,795.
