Dave Boyle Irish Tenor Banjos

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 banjos.

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.

Dave Boyle banjos are played by:

Kieran Hanrahan, Gerry O’Connor, Eamonn Coyne, Barney McKenna, Dave McNiven, Dessie Kelleher, Kevin Breen,
Demaris Woods, Mick Maloney, Aisling Neville 

and many other fine young players.
