This is the same banjo and pickup Winston Marshall of Mumford and Sons uses!
Play your banjo with effects or at any volume without feedback!
The Deering Eagle II Acoustic/Electric banjo is a whole new breed of banjo. It features the ground breaking Kavanjo® banjo pickup system allowing you to play on any stage with a true banjo tone and without the worry of feedback earlier banjo pickups have had.
This banjo also features the patent pending Twenty-Ten Tone Ring which is a completely original Deering design that is unlike any other traditional tone ring. It produces a high quality sound that is versatile for many styles of playing. While the sound is uniquely Eagle, it represents a refinement in the quality of banjo tone, something that allows the player to soar to new heights. It is perfect for the player who wants a professional quality banjo that he can use for playing many styles of music.
