Thanks to a steel tone ring under the head, the Deering Goodtime Special Resonator banjo produces a powerful, crisp, bright tone. It is a considerable step up in volume from the entry-level openback Goodtime, and its cutting tone and authentic banjo "pop" make the Goodtime Special the perfect choice for bluegrass music and festival jam sessions.
Like all Deering banjos, the Goodtime Special is proudly made in the USA, and we think it is easily the best value bluegrass banjo available. If you're looking for a banjo with good volume and tone, and if you'd prefer to keep the cost as low as possible, then this is the banjo for you.PLEASE NOTE: The photos you see are Telluride Music Co. stock images.
