Deering Beginner Banjo for Bluegrass or Clawhammer Styles

The "Goodtime" Deering Beginner Banjo 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.

We can install the Good Time Armrest on the Goodtime 1!
The armrest does not come standard from Deering with the Goodtime 1, only the Goodtime 2 but we can include it installed for only $22.00 more before shipping.

Comments from Ross Nickerson
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.

I wrote the above paragraph back when we added the Good time Banjos to the site. I just received these comments below 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.

.....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

Customer email feedback
....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!

The Goodtime 1 does not come with the armrest like the more expensive Goodtime 2 does. We came up with a solution! We can install it for you for just the price of the armrest when we set the banjo up! See the options to choose the armrest below.

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.
