Deering White Lotus Banjo

5 reviews
  • An incredibly clear, crisp, and full sounding banjo - and it doesn't feature a tone ring! The white oak rim matched with the white oak neck and resonator sound great together. Without the tone ring, this banjo is very lightweight. Your back will thank you if nothing else!

    The bluegrass inspired White Lotus banjo, named for its lotus flower inspired inlay pattern, is centered around the patent pending white oak rim. The wood, notably lacking a traditional heavy tone ring, closely recreates a bright, crisp bluegrass punch, ushering in a new era in playing comfort and sound for today’s banjo player.

    Great Banjo - Great Purchase Experience

    Thanks a million for helping me get this much-desired banjo. Where other vendors talked months to deliver, you all delivered in less than two weeks. It was packed super well and arrived perfectly set up and ready to play. Your service was amazing, as is the banjo.

    Deering White Lotus

    Hard to believe that this banjo has no tone ring. It’s noticeably lighter than my other big metal tone ring banjos but gives up virtually nothing in sound. Plenty of punch that projects crisp and bright. David stands behind his instruments so order with confidence.

    Wonderful Instrument !

    In terms of playability the neck shape and light weight are great, and the tone is a unique voice amongst other banjos I’ve played. Aesthetically, my wife couldn’t get over how nice it looked, especially the contrast of the midnight maple fretboard and solid oak components.

    Excellent banjo, excellent service,

    I received my new Deering White Lotus quickly, and when it arrived without the expected spikes, Banjo Studio paid for me to have them installed. Communications were friendly and prompt, and I appreciate Banjo Studio standing by their sale. I will happily do business with them again!
