Dave Boyle Irish Tenor Banjos
|Note to my customers,
I have been out of action for most of the year due to a fairly
serious back injury. My customers have been very patient and
kind to me over this period and I tried to answer each one
personally. I will be in action again when my doc. gives me
the OK. I can fully understand if people have to go to somebody
else for a banjo. My apologies once again and I will do the
best I can.
Sincerely, Dave Boyle.
Handcrafted banjos made by Dave in his workshop in Leixlip, Co.
Kildare. Dave's Banjos have been designed with the help of many
of Ireland's finest banjo players and developed by Dave over a
period of years.
Dave makes tenor banjos, 19 or 17 fret, plectrum and 5 string
banjos to order, but also has a small stock of ready made tenor
Sometimes reffered to as the Irish Tenor Banjo as its bright
tone lends itself very well to Irish traditional music tuning
i.e. G D A E.
Banjos for Sale:
- A plectrum banjo(22 fret). It is the only one I made and is
too long for most traditional players, but might suit some one.
It is made of native curly sycamore,slightly used but in immaculate
condition.It has a flat head tone ring of my own design and
has an exceptional sound.
- A left handed 5 string Banjo
