Deering Tenbrooks Banjos

Tony Trischka with his Deering Tenbrooks Saratoga Star Banjo

Whether hard driving bluegrass or more delicate modern styles, the Deering Tenbrooks banjos give the player an unprecedented command of the music.

It's namesake was a racehorse that in 1878 Tenbrooks, a racehorse, beat the ever popular Mollie McCarthy by an overwhelming margin in one of the most stirring and memorable races ever to take place at Churchill Downs, site of the famed Kentucky Derby. Like the banjo’s namesake who outdistanced all rivals, the Deering Tenbrooks banjos have a purity of tone, a deep, low bass that supports all the other harmonics of the banjo - a combination that makes a golden, warm, sparkling sound with a foundational solidity that allows the player the ultimate freedom of expression.

Like its namesake, the Deering Tenbrooks banjos are the most memorable banjo you will ever own.
