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!
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.

The Goodtime Blackgrass is the ultimate banjo for players looking for something a little on the darker side. The pure black stain of the all maple wood is accented with matte black hardware and a black head which combine to put a dark twist on an otherwise traditional instrument.
Most banjo players agree that the ideal bluegrass banjo was the flathead built in very limited quantities during the 1930's.
Limited! The banjo pictured on the cover and recorded on the Bluegrass Album was a prewar RB-3 that has been with Saga for more than 30 years.
