About this Banjo
The famous Vega Pie Back Resonator projects the tone of this 19 fret Vega Professional Tenor banjo. Greg Deering re-created the process for making the pie back resonator of the excellent professional grade Tenor banjo. Made with a Tubaphone tone ring, it has the punch, crack, snap, whatever you call it, that quick response and brilliant clarity that perfect tenor sound that is the heart of Dixieland Jazz, Traditional Jazz, Ragtime and Swing, but can also be played and enjoyed in any style of music at the artists discretion. This professional banjo is beautifully made to a high standard of excellence and is a valuable and reliable instrument you can count on for years of enjoyment.

I would recommend them to anyone and everyone
Fantastic banjos sold by fantastic people. I have bought two banjos from Banjo.com and about to buy my third from them. These guys are just great people to go business with; knowledge, banjo players themselves, and just super nice. I do business with them because they are not just looking to sell my any banjo. They provide great input based upon what I want and need; not just what cost the most. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone interested in getting a banjo.
Highly recommend them to others
Barry at Banjo.com helped me make a great choice on purchasing a new banjo. He answered my emails and phone calls promptly. After a few conversations I went with his newly designed Bish Line Coal Dust. I ordered it and he kept me updated on its progress. It arrived in perfect condition and it's even nicer than he described. I will keep Banjo.com at the top of my list for any future purchases and would highly recommend them to others. Thank you again to Barry and his staff.
I couldn't be more pleased with this lovely instrument and the customer service
I recently purchased a Deering Sierra mahogany open back banjo from Banjo.com. Since I live in north Georgia, only two and one-half hours from the home of Banjo.com, I was able to visit the Banjo Barn where Barry give me the opportunity to "test drive" several banjos and he assisted me in narrowing down to my final choice. I must say, I couldn't be more pleased with this lovely instrument and the customer service I received from Barry and Banjo.com. Thank you!
