Product Details

Deering The Goodtime 2 Banjo

A resonator back provides more projection of sound in the Goodtime 2. It's made here in the USA, at the Deering shop with the same tooling used to make the top-of-the-line banjos. Greg Deering designed the Goodtime banjos because there were no low-priced banjos of enough quality for people to actually learn on without difficulty or giving up. He remembers what it was like to want a good banjo and not be able to afford one, so his gift to others is the Goodtime banjo line.

Designed for success, the Goodtime banjos are amongst the lowest-priced American-made banjos ever made. They are so good, many professionals have recorded with Goodtime banjos. The Goodtime 2 weighs 6lb., about the weight of a guitar. The Goodtime 2 has a natural blond maple satin finish to protect it. If you want a great low-priced bluegrass banjo for travel and leisure that plays correctly and is durable, this is a great buy.

For a punchy, hard-driving bluegrass tone, the Deering Goodtime 2 Banjo uses a rock maple neck and resonator, and a birch and maple rim. The slender and fast-playing neck with all geared tuners creates a banjo that is easy to tune, to maintain and to play. Standard 11" head. The Goodtime 2 Banjo is handmade in the USA.
