The stunning new Artisan Goodtime banjo embodies Greg Deerings lifelong vision for the Deering Banjo Company to make the best sounding, best playing, best looking, and best value U.S.A. made banjo that he possibly could. It is a never ending quest that Deering pursues every single day.
The stunning new Artisan Goodtime Parlor is a four inches shorter than the Artisan Goodtime making it ideal to travel with. Durable and easy to maintain, this banjo is also perfect for children.
The Goodtime Artisan Americana™ features a 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.
John McEuen enjoys inspiring others to play music and as ‘Johnny Banjoseed’, he encouraged the Deering Banjo Company to release a John McEuen Goodtime Two™ banjo that he could promote and inspire others to pick up the banjo.
With its bright sound that anybody can recognize, this banjo is special for a reason. The Goodtime Special Openback banjo cuts through sonic landscapes with its bright and powerful tone thanks to its built-in tone ring and openback construction style.
Includes a Goodtime Two banjo, a Deering gig bag, banjo strap, picks, tuner, and a beginner DVD. This package includes everything needed to successfully get started playing the banjo! Including the perfect light weight Goodtime banjo that you can take with you when you travel.
The new Goodtime Six-R banjo comes hot on the heels of the very popular Goodtime Six open back banjo, but with a few additional features making the Goodtime Six-R ready for the big stage both in looks and in build.
Finally! A banjo that can be played at any volume. The new Goodtime Acoustic Electric banjo features the factory installed Kavanjo banjo head pickup system.
The Goodtime Special Resonator is also built with Deering’s new Tone Ring, which also gives the banjo its powerfully bright and sparkling tone. The banjo’s volume also wins points with players, and helps students hear themselves better during practice.
