Since the 18th century, the banjo has played an essential role in defining countless musical styles of the old-time American flavor. When it comes to 5-string banjos, one of the most popular manufacturers in the world in Deering. Founded in 1975, Deering 5-string banjos have since been the go-choice of countless folk and bluegrass artists. In fact, their 5-string banjos are even endorsed by many notable groups in the music industry, including Aerosmith, The Dixie Chicks, Los Lobos and Mumford & Sons.

The right Deering 5-string banjo for you will depend on multiple factors, including how much you're willing to spend and whether you prefer an open-back or resonator type. The basic differences between the two types are that open-back banjos are lighter in weight, produce a mellow tone and are typically quite affordable. Resonator banjos, as their name suggests, have attached resonators on their back to increase volume. The result is a brighter sound that is ideal for genres like bluegrass.

If you're new to the 5-string banjo, it only makes sense to start with one of Deering's more affordable models. Need a suggestion? Try the Deering Goodtime Banjo. This open-back banjo weighs just 4 pounds and is perfect for camping, traveling and also for beginners who are still in the early stages of playing. Or, if you're willing to spend a bit more for a resonator, check out The Goodtime 2 Banjo. Like The Goodtime, this 5-string banjo is a top-rated item and the addition of a resonator gives it a little extra oomph so you can jam along with like-minded musical peers.

Of course, Deering has more than enough 5-string banjos here for pro-level players too. For example, the 5-Boaston 5-String Banjo has a crisp, dynamic and powerful tone that sounds amazing on stage and in the studio. Handmade in the USA, it has a comfortable, slender, low-profile neck and comes with a stylish, durable case. Or, how about the 5-Deluxe 5-String Banjo. Boasting a high-gloss finish, ebony peghead overlay and mother-of-pearl inlay, this stunning banjo has elegant looks to complement its amazing clarity and easy playability.

As you can see, Deering offers a wide range of 5-string banjos, each of which are a combination of various tonal woods, tone rings, heads, pickups and scale lengths. Whatever grabs your attention, you can bet that Deering puts the same hard work and passion into every model they design. So take your time browsing this selection of Deering 5-string banjos; you'll know the right one for you when you see it.
