    Comments about Deering Goodtime Midnight Special 5 string Resonator Banjo:

    I opted for this banjo in order to have it to play while away from home, rather than travel with a much heavier banjo, and cumbersome hard case. Another feature that appealed to me was the tone ring as well as the lighter weight. I also liked the black look!
    I had tried out a friends Deering Goodtime prior to purchasing this and based on the tone of that banjo, I knew I couldn't go wrong with the Special version.

        Comments about Deering Goodtime Midnight Special 5 string Resonator Banjo:

        Can't. Say enough good about this banjo! Good tone, stays in tune. Play it hard , stays in tune. The price is right. Spikes in neck are installed correctly and easy to use. I think it could use a wider armrest. I think it looks nice too.
