Deering Goodtime Americana

17 reviews

The Deering Goodtime Americana is an openback banjo with a wide 12" diameter rim! We love these banjos. The wider rim and renaissance head give the banjo a great big and warm tone. If you want to play old time music, clawhammer banjo, folk music, or just general banjo strumming tunes, this banjo is perfect. 

A standard Goodtime banjo has an 11" rim. With the 12" rim you get more bass response and a fatter, more round tone. This is a great banjo for old time clawhmmer playing.  Hear the difference in the video below!

The new wider Grand 12" rim found on the Goodtime Americana emphasizes the bass response and gives the banjo an unmistakeble tone.

The renaissance head complements the Grand 12" rim on the Goodtime Americana to further enhance this banjo's sweet, warm tone.

Beautiful engraved peghead featuring the Americana name, Goodtime logo, and scrollwork design.

    Great service in these crazy times!

    This fantastic banjo is hard to come by and this was a graduation gift. Thanks so much for your help and rapid shipping. The hills in Oregon will ring with the sounds of Deering.

    Outstanding Purchase

    Not only did I receive exceptional costumer service over the phone and online, but the product was everything I could have wanted at the price point. I love my new Deering Americana, and I'm looking forward to some long over due clawhammer sessions when social distancing becomes a thing of the past.

    Goodtime Americana banjo

    Great banjo. Easy to play a great first banjo for s beginner player. Workmanship is outstanding. Just touch the strings no hurt fingers. My first Deering was when the company was two years old. I would definitely buy again...

    Love my banjo. Delivery was very slow.

    The banjo was delivered in great condition. Love this banjo. Ordered on a Monday midday eastern time zone. Item in stock. Confirmation that FedEx tracking number produced on Tuesday morning. Did not receive until the following Tuesday. FedEx did not even pick up the banjo until two days after shipping info received.

    Great Banjo! Great service!

    She arrived packaged well. Very p!easing to the eye. Blonde finish and the detail to the fret board is very nice. Playability, nice action and tone. No buzzing all the way down the fret board. Great voice really like to hear her sing. Banjo Studios treated me professionally and followed up with my email. It took a bit of time to receive (they had to order it and set it up) But patience pays off and plus free shipping to boot. Very good price by the way! Will be buying other products from Banjo Studios in the future
