  • The Deering Eagle II banjo is Deering's most affordable professional grade resonator 5-string banjo. The Deering Eagle II banjo features the ground breaking, patent pending Deering Twenty-Ten Tone Ring which is a completely original Deering Banjo design that is unlike any other traditional tone ring. It produces a high quality sound that is versatile for many styles of playing. The sound represents a refinement in the quality of banjo tone. It has a very clean tone which emphasizes the mid range frequencies and is very responsive. This responsiveness allows the player to play with a light touch, thus making it easier for the player to nail difficult passages. It is perfect for the player who wants a professional quality banjo that he can use for playing many styles of music.

    This is the model that is played by Winston Marshall, the banjo player for the band Mumford and Sons.

    Great banjo and sales team!

    My new Eagle II sounds and plays amazing and I love everything about it. Beautiful instrument that sounds and plays as good as it looks. The people at Banjo Studio did a great job, good communication, fast shipping, and Dave was very helpful. I’ll definitely buy from here again.

    My new Eagle II

    My new Eagle II is my first banjo, so I'll have to let you know how it plays once I can play a little. It came in great condition with the other things I ordered. Thanks to Dave for his help.

    I ordered my Eagle II

    I ordered my Eagle II on line and received a confirmation call within a couple of hours. David was very professional, and we reviewed the order complete with shipping information. My banjo arrived on time and in perfect condition. It is a beauty, and I love the fretting and sound it has. I plan to continue doing business with Banjo Studio for additional instruments and accessories.
