Deering Goodtime 17 Fret Tenor Banjo

The Deering Goodtime 17 Fret Tenor Banjo offers an impressively compact body that is perfect for travelling, as well as being well-suited for younger or smaller players, or those wishing to play sitting down in an armchair. With its short scale, this banjo is ideal for a variety of playing styles.

Made in America. Tuned in 5ths like a mandolin or violin but starting on a C note as the low note, (C,G,D,A), this banjo is a great crossover instrument for string players! Can also be tuned in the Irish tuning of G,D,A,E with a simple change of strings!

As one customer put it:

"Really great instrument with a great build quality and a lovely loud and rich tone. It is a delight to play with its short scale fretboard, slim neck and light weight body. I chose the Irish G,D,A,E tuning so that I can use the chords and tunes already learnt on the mandolin and am able to play it with just a little more of a stretch and a bit more movement of the old fingers! I'm well impressed and can strongly recommend one of these lovely American banjos".
