DEERING GOODTIME 17-FRET TENOR BANJO

New product

Made in America at the Deering Banjo factory in California, the Goodtime openback banjo weighs about 4 pounds so it is ideal for traveling, camping, hiking, taking to the beach and provides a vibrant singing banjo tone in any situation.

Also, light enough to easily hold and play and is the perfect banjo to start out with since it is fretted correctly and plays easily. The shorter 17 fret neck reduces the length of the entire banjo to just 32 inches end to end.

Tuned in 5ths like a viola or cello (C,G,D,A), this banjo is a great crossover instrument for string players! As one customer put it "Really great instrument with a great build quality and a lovely loud and rich tone. It is a delight to play with its short scale fretboard, slim neck and light weight body. I chose the Irish G,D,A,E tuning so that I can use the chords and tunes already learned on the mandolin and am able to play it with just a little more of a stretch and a bit more movement of the old fingers! I'm well impressed and can strongly recommend one of these lovely American banjos".

Purchase from an expert

The large corporate chains don't ship your banjos set up and ready to play.
If you call them, their employees don't play the banjo or know anything about them.
I have been playing and teaching banjo professionally all my adult life. I will give it to you straight and steer you in the right direction, whether it is in our direction or not. Purchase here from an expert and reward knowledge, honesty, integrity and dedication.
We value your support and educated choice.
