Deering Goodtime Americana

1 item left

The Deering Goodtime Americana is an openback banjo with a wide 12" diameter rim! We love these banjos. The wider rim and renaissance head give the banjo a great big and warm tone. If you want to play old time music, clawhammer banjo, folk music, or just general banjo strumming tunes, this banjo is perfect. 

A standard Goodtime banjo has an 11" rim. With the 12" rim you get more bass response and a fatter, more round tone. This is a great banjo for old time clawhmmer playing.  Hear the difference in the video below!

The new wider Grand 12" rim found on the Goodtime Americana emphasizes the bass response and gives the banjo an unmistakeble tone.

The renaissance head complements the Grand 12" rim on the Goodtime Americana to further enhance this banjo's sweet, warm tone.

Beautiful engraved peghead featuring the Americana name, Goodtime logo, and scrollwork design.

    Solid Banjo, Great Customer Service

    David was super helpful and answered all of my questions. I received my banjo and I'm very happy with it, and the price. Some things to improve: I was confused at first because I didn't realize that this was not a retail store. This is a business that primarily operates online. The instrument I wanted, was on back-order, so while I was able to order it, I didn't get to play the actual instrument until it arrived in the mail. All in all, it was a positive experience and I would do business again

    First Banjo - Love it!

    I am a long tie guitar player so appreciate the fact that this instrument came set up and ready to play. Well made, sounds great, responsive dynamics, fun to play. If this keeps up I'll be buying the Artisan version next!

    Great service in these crazy times!

    This fantastic banjo is hard to come by and this was a graduation gift. Thanks so much for your help and rapid shipping. The hills in Oregon will ring with the sounds of Deering.

    Outstanding Purchase

    Not only did I receive exceptional costumer service over the phone and online, but the product was everything I could have wanted at the price point. I love my new Deering Americana, and I'm looking forward to some long over due clawhammer sessions when social distancing becomes a thing of the past.

    Goodtime Americana banjo

    Great banjo. Easy to play a great first banjo for s beginner player. Workmanship is outstanding. Just touch the strings no hurt fingers. My first Deering was when the company was two years old. I would definitely buy again...
