Goodtime Banjo 1 With Free Official Deering Gig Bag

New product

Banjoteacher.com now proudly carrying Deering Banjos. The Deering goodtime is a really easy banjo to play and which makes it even easier to learn on. The price is right too and with our superior beginner package you can get started playing and practicing right away.

This American made beginner banjo is easy to learn on and reasonably priced. The Goodtime banjo is very light which makes learning easier at first. It stays in tune and has an amazing tone that is bright but not harsh. The tone is a pleasing mellow tone which will encourage you to practice and they feel good in your hands.

The Goodtime banjo vibrant ringing tone is produced from its natural finished violin grade maple rim.  At only 4 pounds, the weight makes it ideal for both children and adults to play and to travel with conveniently.

Teachers and professionals around the world recommend the Goodtime banjo for greater success in learning to play. Including me, Ross Nickerson, pictured below with Greg Deering.

Comments from Ross Nickerson at BanjoTeacher.com
I've had many students start with this model with a lot of success. Its one of those banjos you just don't want to put down. I know you'll be satisfied if you choose to learn on the Deering Goodtime Banjo.

Update: I wrote the above paragraph back when we added the Goodtimes to the site. I just received these comments by email. He mentions how he can't put it down. As a teacher that's one of the biggest attribute and selling points for the Goodtime 1. Ross Nickerson

Even in the short time that I have had it, I find it almost irresistible for its light weight and tone (just snatch it off the rack and practice for a while;) John C

....Hello Ross, I received my Goodtime Banjo in, what to me must be, record time; not more than 48 hours after we spoke on the phone.

I love it. It’s a great, light-weight, banjo with excellent tone. Is it the equivalent of a $1,200 - $1,500 banjo? Of course not, it’s not intended to be. I have read many reviews of the Deering Goodtime and most critics seem to be missing the point: the Goodtime is not intended to be the last banjo you will ever purchase (if it is, the banjo was probably not the instrument for you in the first place).

Even in the short time that I have had it, I find it almost irresistible for its light weight and tone (just snatch it off the rack and practice for a while; much more tempting than my 12-pound alternative; although I do like my RK-35). The armrest and the capo spikes are also a welcome addition. Finally, the setup was perfect, just a quick tune and I was ready to go. It will suit my needs perfectly as my wife and I travel a lot in our RV. Thank you for recommending it!

Thanks for the good deal and great service!

....Ross, I received the Deering Americana yesterday. Everything looks really good. The banjo has a very nice mellow tone. Thanks for the good deal and great service!
