Thread Name: tuning a tenor banjo
Subject: RE: tuning a tenor banjo
I only use GDAE tuning. These days I'm using Eagle Newtone pick your own for 40, 28, 18, 12.

I suppose if I was looking at other makes and looking for a Jazz set, I'd probably give D'Addario a try.

It is a tenor banjo rather than a plectrum banjo you have? The plectrum is the same scale length as a 5 string. The tenors are shorter and usually 19 or 17 frets.
