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.
