The new Deering Julia Belle low banjo is a unique collaboration between Deering banjos and banjoist Alison Brown. Alison uses this banjo to tune down to open E or D. This banjo sounds great when tuned at standard open G tuning as well but we would recommend using lighter gauge strings.

Only a few of these banjos will be available this year so preorder yours today!

 

This 24-fret low tuned banjo features John Hartford’s hand drawn artwork on the fingerboard as well as design aesthetics and features customized by Alison herself. The result is an absolutely gorgeous and unique instrument that reaches across time and generations for its inspiration.
