Made in the USA at the Deering shop with the same tooling we use to make the top of the line banjos, the Goodtime banjos are the most affordable American made banjos. They are so accurate, many professionals record and perform with Goodtime banjos.

The Goodtime Special Tone Ring is a new feature on the Goodtime Special banjo. Designed by Deering, the Goodtime Special Tone Ring produces a louder, sweeter bell tone, a considerable step up in tone from the original tone ring that was featured on Deering's Goodtime Special banjos. The volume of tone is a wonderful surprise to players who pick up this unassuming Goodtime Special banjo to find a real prize.

 

If you're looking for a banjo with good volume and tone, and prefer to keep the cost as low as possible, then this is the banjo could just be the one for you. It will perform well in a jam session or band setting, feel comfortable, fret correctly, and be a stable instrument you can play for years to come.
