Deering Eagle II 5-String Banjo with Tapered Resonator Sidewalls

  • This is a very rare and unique banjo.  The tapering of the resonator sidewalls gives this banjo a very large tonal upgrade, while still keeping the cost down.  Tapered resonator sidewalls help get all of the harmonic frequencies generated when you play the banjo out of the resonator giving the banjo a much richer, fuller tone.  This is usually just found on Deering banjos at the Calico price point and up.
  • Deering's newest and most affordable professional grade resonator 5-string banjo. The Eagle II banjo is a whole new breed of banjo. It features the ground breaking, 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.
