OVERVIEW

Reminiscent of banjos from a period when larger rims were more prevalent.

The Americana is the first 5-string banjo from Deering to be fitted with their Grand 12" rim, which gives the banjo a stronger bass response and a much warmer tone. The fullness and warmth of the larger rim is further enhanced by the addition of a 12 Renaissance head which beautifully complements the banjo both visually and sonically.

Continuing the long-standing Goodtime philosophy of offering the best value American-made banjos available, the Americana is the lowest-priced 12 model on the market today and retains the distinctive natural blonde Goodtime aesthetics. In keeping with the rest of the Goodtime line, this banjo also features guitar-style tuners, a rock maple neck, nickel-plated hardware, and hardwood inlays.

Played with an old-time style technique, the Americana is reminiscent of banjos from a period when larger rims were more prevalent making the 12 a great setup for playing old-time music. A traditional 11 banjo with a frosted top head has a far brighter sound and will œcut more. Since the combination of the Grand 12 rim and the Renaissance head makes for a wonderfully laid back sound in comparison, the Americana lends itself perfectly for musicians looking to use the banjo to back up a vocalist or another instrument, instead of playing the a lead instrument role.
