    The most popular American made banjo for over a decade!

    This blonde beauty is the perfect banjo to learn on and sets the standard for all others in its price range. The 3-ply violin grade maple rim gives the banjo a beautiful responsive tone which is not found in other banjo brands in this price point.

    As a teacher, if you are just starting to learn how to play the banjo, I would always recommend the Deering Goodtime banjo.

    At just over 4 lbs., it is ideal for traveling, hiking, taking to the beach, or wherever you're ready to pick a few tunes! If you are buying a banjo for someone who is just starting out, then this is the banjo to get.
