OVERVIEW

Loud and lovely tone.

If you want a top quality reasonably priced Irish Tenor banjo, the Goodtime 17-fret Tenor is a real find. Made in America at the Deering Banjo factory in California, the Goodtime open back banjo weighs about 4 pounds so it is ideal for traveling, camping, hiking, and taking to the beach. It provides a vibrant singing banjo tone in any situation.

Light enough to hold and play easily, it is the perfect banjo for beginners since it is fretted correctly and plays easily. The shorter 17-fret neck reduces the length of the entire banjo to just 32 inches end to end. Tuned in 5ths like a viola or cello (C,G,D,A), this banjo is a great crossover instrument for string instrument players of all kinds.

FEATURES
Easy switch from guitar or mandolin
Great sound and projection
Lightweight and easy to play

      Comments about Deering Goodtime 17-Fret Tenor 4-String Banjo:

      I am just leaning to play the tenor banjo and the banjo was set up great from the factory. My background includes 16 years of playing guitar, 2 years of bass, and a year of playing a uke. Deering is an American company that makes great banjo's at affordable prices. When I was researching banjo's everyone was suggesting the Deering Goodtime and I would recommend it also.
