Have you ever wanted to play the Banjo but never had the time to learn? Maybe you want to add a new sound and character to your songs that you play on the guitar. The Deering Goodtime Six String Banjo is a steel string Banjo that tunes exactly like a normal guitar, but gives it that great and authentic Banjo sound.

All Deering banjos are hand built in Spring Valley California. The Goodtime series uses an all maple construction that brings out much of the clarity in the instrument, which is excellent for banjo, that can often get muddied up from all of the overtones created by the banjo skin. The maple is also very stable and durable, ensuring that your banjo will play easily and sound great for decades to come.

The Kavanjo pickup is one of my favourite banjo pickups available. Having the magnetic pickup means that it is much less prone to feedback than other pickup styles. This is often a big issue with banjos, and often leads to banjo players using microphones instead. Microphones have their own drawbacks though, not the least of which is that you can’t move around on stage without losing your amplification.

If you are looking for a 6-string banjo to add to your live performances, to your jams, or to your recordings, then the Goodtime Six is the perfect solution.
