Four String Banjos - Tenor Banjos
Four string banjos tend to be favored by jazz and Dixie land musicians. They are usually played with a flat pick, and so are often also called a "Plectrum" banjo. Eddie Peabody was possibly the greatest exponent of the plectrum banjo style in the early to mid twentieth century. Another type of four-string banjo is the Tenor banjo. The tenor banjo is also played with a pick, but generally has a shorter neck than a Plectrum, with typically 19 frets versus 22 on a plectrum banjo.
