Put your guitar licks to work on a banjo!
Beautiful to look at and fun to play!
The classic, unmistakable sound of a banjo has been a mainstay in folk, bluegrass and country music since the early 1800's. From back porches to festivals across the nation, the banjo is a part of our American heritage; and you can be sure that a Deering Banjo will provide you with all the quality and skilled craftsmanship you need to showcase your plucking talents to their highest degree. Whether you're an expert of the instrument or recently took it up as a hobby, Deering has a model available for every skill level and budget. Made proudly the U.S.A, Deering is a name that banjoists have trusted for over 30 years. In fact, more banjos are produced at the Deering factory than any other in North America.
One of the top rated banjos in the Deering catalog is the Goodtime 2 Banjo. Crafted for success, it's one of the most popular banjos ever made, and also one of the lowest-priced. Easy to tune, and even easier to play, this banjo is perfect for players looking to achieve a bright, hard-driving bluegrass sound. For younger players, the Goodtime 2 Zombie Killer Banjo is superb for budding pluckers interested in the zombie apocalypse. The maple resonator of this banjo is finished to appear worn and blood splattered, while the resonator flange has teeth around its outer edge like a circular saw blade. Simply put, it's a fantastic choice for any young or young at heart banjoist.
With the rise in popularity of groups like Mumford & Sons and the Dropkick Murphys, a new generation is now taking up interest in the banjo. These days, more and more artists are incorporating the banjo into their sound, to the point that it's no longer only a bluegrass or country instrument. While wonderfully distinct, the banjo is also incredibly diverse; and thanks to Deering banjos, this quintessentially American instrument will continue to capture the imaginations of music fans for centuries to come.
