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.
We are happy to feature the Grammy winning singer songwriter and multi instrumentalist Tim O’Brien on the Banjo Studio podcast. Tim grew up singing in church and in school, and after seeing Doc Watson on TV, became a lifelong devotee of old time and bluegrass music.
We recently sat down to talk with 5-string banjo legend Tony Trischka. Tony has been a pioneer in progressive bluegrass and 5-string banjo for decades. He has won numerous awards and has pushed the banjo into new territories.
