Deering's newest professional grade openback 5-string banjo. The Eagle II banjo is a whole new breed of banjo. It features the ground breaking, patent pending Twenty-Ten Tone Ring which is a completely original Deering design that gives the banjo an extremely clear tone.
I would assimilate this tone to be closest to that of a tubaphone tone ring, as both are made with brass and have the warmth that is characteristic with brass. But this banjo is clearer as the mid range frequencies are enhanced (the frequencies the human ear hears the best).
This banjo features spikes at frets 7, 9, and 10 at no extra charge!
This is an incredible clawhammer banjo.
Includes a Deering Hardshell Case
A strong mid range tone with good bass and vibrant highs, that is versatile for playing both Clawhammer and Bluegrass styles of playing.
Tuned:g,D,G,B,D in standard tuning
