The best beginner banjo!

As a teacher, if you are just starting to learn how to play the banjo, I would always recommend the Deering Goodtime banjo. This blonde beauty is the perfect banjo to learn on and sets the standard for all others in its price range. The 3-ply violin grade maple rim gives the banjo a beautiful responsive tone which is not found in other banjo brands in this price point.

Comes set up and ready to play! Free shipping with the contiguous United States!

The Deering Goodtime banjo is the ideal choice for beginner banjo players. Its 3-ply violin grade maple rim provides a superior sound that can't be matched in entry-level banjos.
