Great tone at a very modest price!

The Deering Goodtime 2 banjo features a resonator back, thus providing more projection of sound. It's made in America, at the Deering shop with the same tooling used to make the top of the line banjos. Greg Deering designed the Goodtime banjos because there were no low priced banjos of enough quality for people to actually learn on without difficulty or giving up. He remembers what it was like to want a good banjo and not be able to afford one, so his gift to others is the Goodtime banjo line.

Designed for success, the Goodtime banjos are the lowest priced American made banjos. They are so good many professionals have recorded with Goodtime banjos. The Goodtime Two weighs only 6 lbs, about the weight of a guitar. The Goodtime Two has a natural blonde maple satin finish to protect it. If you want a great low priced bluegrass banjo for travel and leisure that plays correctly and is durable, this is the best buy on the market!

For a punchy, hard-driving bluegrass tone, the Deering Goodtime Two Banjo uses a rock maple neck and resonator, and a birch and maple rim. The slender and fast-playing neck with all geared tuners creates a banjo that is easy to tune, to maintain and to play. Standard 11" head. The Goodtime Two banjo is handmade in the USA.

Tone:
Has a bright sound of maple that projects well.
Easy to play with clarity of note separation.

Tuned:
G,D,G,B,D in standard G tuning.

Can easily be tuned in other tunings as well.

    Very nice banjo.

    David, you made the purchase very easy. The new Deering Goodtime 2 has a better and brighter and stronger sound that one I had some years ago. It, like all Goodtimes, are a bit flat way up the neck, but for the price and overall quality, I find myself playing it more than my Sierra. Only 4 stars because I've been able to connect to Tunefox for the 3 months of lessons that you offered with my purchase, and you were not helpful in trying to resolve that. I'm simply being honest. I would buy from you again. Mike Gibbs

    The Journey Begins

    It was already decided! I was going to purchase a new banjo to learn to play. What I needed was a experienced, knowledgeable banjo person to guide me in the proper purchase direction that would provide best benefits. I found that with David of Banjo Studio in New Orleans. I now a a great quality Deering "Goodtime Two" banjo to learn with and, as an added benefit, David agreeing to be my banjo instructor. I couldn't be happier on both counts. The journey has now begun.

    Thank you Dave for pulling off the impossible, a high quality ready to play banjo with an awesome Kavanjo pickup head installed, all in under 4 days. Totally made the show happen, and we couldn't be happier to add the Deering Goodtime Two Banjo to our backline rental inventory. The Banjo Studio will forever be our first, last and only call for all our banjo needs. Thank you very much.
