Product Description

The affordable Boston banjo is great for jamming with friends as well as recording! Featuring solid American craftmanship, the Boston Banjo provides a professional quality tone by creating the drum from 3/16 inch rolled steel which rings like a tone ring.

Deering Boston Resonator Banjo Features

  • Has the sweet sound of mahogany with less sustain than a maple or walnut banjo.
  • Crisp highs and good bass response with fewer overtones than many banjos
  •  Easy to play with clarity of note separation.
  • Great for recording

The powerful and dynamic sound of the Boston comes from that steel rim which creates a bright, clear, crisp tone. The mahogany neck and resonator are satin finished and the precise fretwork in the polished ebony fingerboard makes the intonation accurate and the playing surface fast and effortless. The slender, low-profile Deering neck is comfortable for all hand sizes. Handmade in the USA.

"The interesting thing about the steel rim is that when we first started making it we went to the San Diego Bluegrass Club. When we got out of the car we could hear the parking lot picking going on and there would always be one banjo that I could hear all the way across the parking lot. We made a game out of going and finding out whose banjo that was, and over a period of time we started to notice that almost every time it was a Boston. That steel rim has a really good clarity of tone. It carries really well and will project beyond banjos that cost a lot more. It is a really good jamming banjo. We call it the Boston because of the banjo heritage of the city of Boston. Over a hundred years ago the whole Mecca of banjos and the banjo world was centered around the city of Boston." Greg Deering
