If you're looking for a banjo with good volume and tone, and prefer to keep the cost as low as possible, then the Deering Goodtime Special Banjo is for you.

The newly Patented Goodtime Special Tone Ring designed by Deering produces a powerfully crisp, bright, sparkling tone, a considerable step up in tone from the original tone ring that was featured on Deering Goodtime Special banjos. The volume of tone is a wonderful surprise to players. This banjo will perform well in a jam session or band setting, feel comfortable, fret correctly, and be a stable instrument you can play for years to come. Case not included.
