Here is a demonstration of some of the possible tuning ranges of the 4-string cello banjo. I'm playing a Gold Tone CEB-4. Irish tenor/octave mandolin tuning: GDAE Cello tuning: CGDA Double Octave: GDAE (one octave lower than Irish tenor) Cycling through, in the above order, I play a major scale before Cooley's Reel, followed by Cluck Old Hen. The whole theatrical routine takes 6.5 minutes. I'd be very interested in hearing your response.

You have raised the number of cello banjos on my long list of instruments that I cannot (yet) afford to buy to three.  I wonder if I can get a discount for a volume purchase...

They all sound WONDERFUL.  You coaxed the most penetratingly satisfying bass sounds out of the GDAE octave-below-tenor possible from a banjo.  You managed to get a rich tone and good sustain out of each of three different tunings.
