    The most popular American made banjo for over a 20 years!

    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.

    At just over 4 lbs., it is ideal for traveling, hiking, taking to the beach, or wherever you're ready to pick a few tunes! If you are buying a banjo for someone who is just starting out, then this is the banjo to get.

    Amazing quality and excellent service

    Couldn’t ask for a better approach to customer service: proactive, appreciative, and quick. The instrument quality is top notch, and far above what i would expect at this price point.

    Deering Parlor Model 5-string banjo

    Aside from the long shipping time...the instrument seems ok. My wife is just learning; is a small lady; and the Parlor model is much easier for her. Thanks!

    I am quite pleased with the service and the banjo. Having never played any instrument previously, I now have my wife whistling the tunes of my rolls.
