A small 5-string banjo for travel, teaching children or for simple enjoyment by anyone, the Goodtime Parlor is just plain cute. It is tuned in G just the same as a 22 fret banjo, but it is 4 inches shorter with only 19 frets. Great for teaching youngsters to play! Get them started early with a banjo they can manage and you give them a lifetime of enjoyment playing the banjo. The Goodtime Parlor is affordable and is made in the USA with quality parts and designed to play right so learning is fun and easy.

Whether you have big or small hands, it is fun to play.

    My second banjo from Banjo Studio

    My first banjo from Banjo Studio is a Deering Goodtime Plectrum reviewed elsewhere on the site. I just got my second banjo, a Deering Goodtime Parlor 5 string to use in my camping trailer. In both of my reviews I focus more on the buying experience from David at Banjo Studio rarther than the instrument itself since we all know the Deering instrument quality and I cannot imagine Deering having substandard dealers! My second experience with buying a Deering from from David is just as positive as the first. My overall advice when you start the banjo selection/buying process is #1 Do your homework to narrow down what instrument best meets your needs and then, #2-CALL DAVID AT BANJO STUDIO! His professional knowledge is amazing and it will be the best move you can make.

    ...sold me an item that wasn't in stock (with NO notice of this until after the order was placed. This would be a 0 star review is that was an option. I'll tell you about the banjo if and when it shows up (still waiting after about 3 weeks)...

    I am sorry you feel this way. We always strive to be as honest and transparent as possible. I hope you received your banjo and are happy with it.
