Product Description

The Deering Goodtime 2- 5 String Banjo has a resonator back that provides more projection of sound. Greg Deering remembers what it was like to want a good banjo and not be able to afford one, so he created the Goodtime banjos. He designed them to fill in the gap between low priced banjos and banjos with enough quality for beginners to learn without difficultly or giving up.

Deering makes the banjos here in the USA, at the Deering shop with the same tooling they use to make the top of the line banjos. The Goodtime banjos are the designed for success and are the lowest priced American made banjos - so good that many professionals have recorded with Goodtime banjos. The Goodtime 2 has a natural blond maple satin finish to protect it and weighs 6 pounds, about the same weight of a guitar. If you want a great low priced bluegrass banjo for travel and leisure that plays properly and is durable, the Goodtime 2 is the best buy on the market!

Not as great as hoped.

What is your opinion of this product?
This banjo is ok. It is as advertised a $600 banjo nothing special. The tone is good, but I have a $200 banjo that sounds almost as good. The neck is made of 3 pieces glued together rather than one solid piece. There is no truss rod, so if there is a neck problem you either have to go through warranty or if they refuse your out of luck. The banjo was severely out of adjustment when I received and since they did not provide a banjo key I was unable to play it till I purchased a socket to fit. Someone forgot to tell them the world is now metric. When I inquired why they did not include a banjo key they copped an attitude. I hope if I have warranty problem they I get a better response. All in all it is not a bad instrument, but I expected more from Deering both in quality and customer service. If you want a beginner banjo, I would look elsewhere for less money. If you want an lower intermediate model this isn't bad.
