Tone:

The Texas has a smaller air chamber than the Golden Era or the Tenbrooks banjos which gives it a very responsive poppy sound with excellent note separation. Made of Walnut, the Texas banjo has the bright sound of maple combined with the sweet tone of mahogany. It is the best of both worlds. The banjo plays string to string and up the neck at a consistent clarity and volume.

Tuned:

G,D,G,B,D in standard G tuning

Can easily be tuned in other tunings as well.
