Enjoy huge savings on 5-String Resonator banjos, often played in the Bluegrass style of music. These banjos have a resonator attached to the back of the pot which projects the sound forward, away from the banjo player. These banjos tend to produce a bright and lively sound compared to the more muted tones of the open-back banjo. We carry many 5-String Resonator Banjos, some are right for a professional and some are better suited for a beginner banjo player. One of our most popular beginner bluegrass banjos is the Deering Goodtime 2, which is a great investment for someone new the banjo scene. All banjo players will save when they purchase any of our Bluegrass Banjos for sale!
The AC-5 Resonator Banjo may stray a bit from the traditional wood body banjo design, but it packs a punch like no other and will stand up against any banjo in it's price range. The rim and resonator are molded from a composite material that is strong, consistent, and durable.
Entry level banjos must be designed for easy learning. The Cripple Creek 50 with Resonator and guitar-style tuners is just that! We have taken our popular CC-50 model and added a full walled resonator to suit the beginning bluegrass banjo player.

Just like its little cousin, the Goodtime banjo, the Deering Goodtime 2 is rich on sound and value. The Goodtime 2 comes built with a resonator that gives it that bright and big bluegrass sound. Made with care and precision, it offers quality and playability in an affordable package for players of all levels.
A small 5-string banjo for travel, teaching children or for simple enjoyment by anyone, the Goodtime Parlor is just plain cute. It is tuned in G just the same as a 22 fret banjo, but it is 4 inches shorter with only 19 frets.
Our new midline, full-size bluegrass banjo includes features found on our pro models. This would also be an excellent instrument for players looking for a lightweight bluegrass banjo.
