  • Description

    The Goodtime 2 banjo is fast and easy to play due to the slender, low profile, rock maple neck. The single coordinator rod in the pot allows the player or technician to adjust the action to suit the players needs.

    The standard 11" diameter rim is made with three plys of violin maple. The 16 brackets and standard rim diameter make head adjustments easy and simple and the availability of replacement heads is simple since the heads are the same size as almost all modern banjos (11" high crown).

    The maple resonator has a natural blond maple finish with a single black binding strip around the back edge. The resonator fastens to the banjo by machine screws that thread into brass wall lugs on the side walls of the resonator. Access is easy and simple.

    The Goodtime 2 is equipped with all geared tuning machines for easy, accurate, and stable tuning. The maple and ebony bridge and top frosted head give a crisp, bright sound. Case not included.

    Comments about Deering Banjos Goodtime 2 5-String Banjo:

    Deering is known for their high quality banjos. This is from their less expensive "Goodtime" line of banjos with the "Goodtime-2" having a pan instead of being an open back for more sound projection.

    The most important thing is playability. This banjo forgoes some niceties and instead concentrates on sound and playability. Being made of rock maple, the neck is solid with just the right amount of relief. The action is set at a perfect 1/8" at the highest two frets. The frets themselves are on the small and on the low side which provides for great sliding and hammer-ons and hammer-offs. The fit, finish and hardware is spot on and it is made in the U.S.
