Other Stringed Instruments and Accessories

"We're Not Just Guitars"

We stock many fretted, stringed instruments that are not guitars! And some that are guitars are not your typical, everyday models.


The banjo is an instrument invented here in America. While it began as a percussive rhythm instrument, derived from an African drum, the banjo has evolved to become a critical component of today's bluegrass artform. The Minor Chord stocks a range of banjos from Johnson and Recording King.

More Acoustic Instruments



The mandolin is an eight string instrument, usually played with a pick (sometimes called a plectrum). It has four pairs of strings tuned in fifths, like a violin. We offer new Kentucky mandolins, Paris Swing mandolins, and Fender electric and acoustic mandolins.


Paris Swing Mandolins - NEW!

The Paris-Swing Mandolins are the latest addition to our mandolin selection. The Paris Swing Mandolin combines the gypsy jazz look with vintage mandolin tone, and provides the ultimate in volume and cutting power. Each Paris Swing mandolin has a distinctive right-angle cutaway on the treble side that players associate with the great gypsy jazz instruments.

Paris Swing mandolins feature select, solid AAA flamed maple back and sides, a flamed maple neck and a solid sitka spruce top. The fingerboards are select ebony and the top loading tailpiece is nickel plated brass. Each model is bound with tortoise-shell (natural models) or grained ivoroid (sunburst models) binding.
