1920s “Perfacktone” Short-neck Tenor Banjo set up for Irish Music

  • Mother of pearl inlays to fret-board

I believe that “Perfacktone” banjos were made by Slingerland in Chicago in the 1920s. I bought this banjo in Dublin in the 1980s set up for playing Irish music – which it has done ever since!

Very easy to play and with a good, deep tone.

The original friction tuning pegs have been replaced with good-quality Planetary-style geared tuning machines – making this banjo a highly playable and reliable instrument. The original friction pegs are included in the case.

It has a few scratches etc, but is otherwise in excellent condition considering its age.

Comes in original hard case – shows signs of age but still functional. An ideal small case for busy pub sessions!

Will courier in UK by Parcelforce Express48 - or collect for free from W Sussex/Surrey.
