You are looking at a Deering Calico 5-String Banjo, serial number Y560. This is the actual banjo you will receive should you decide to purchase. (11 lbs, 13.8 oz.)

The Calico 5-string banjo is a premium instrument by Deering, affording crisp highs, as well as distinct, responsive bass. The beautiful highs and powerful well-rounded bass notes are the result of a concentrated study of alloys and shapes, with a focus on superb sound. This high-caliber banjo includes tapered inside resonator walls, glued-in frets, and a Deering bronze tone-ring. This instrument is for the experienced player who appreciates the top-quality specs and fantastic crisp, clear voice this Calico banjo has to offer.

Tapered Inside Resonator Walls
The Calico 5-string banjo features a gorgeous flame maple resonator with specially tapered inside resonator walls for added projection of tone. With a brighter tone than mahogany, maple provides a beautiful low-end response and great highs. The Calico plays string to string and up the neck with strong clarity and volume so it easily stands out when played along with the other instruments in a band.

Glued-In Frets
Each fret is fitted to the fingerboard and glued in so that when the frets are worn out, they can easily be replaced without damaging the fingerboard. Veteran players know how helpful this can be.

Deering Bronze Tone-Ring
The heart of the Deering Calico banjo is the Deering bronze tone-ring, precisely fitted to the three-ply maple rim. The Deering -06- tone ring produces a beautiful, balanced overtone spectrum. A softer touch will provide you with as much sustain as you could ever want, while a sharper attack will produce a distinct pop and accurate note separation.

Features:

  • Curly Maple Resonator with Tapered Walls
  • 11" Premium Violin Grade 3-Ply Maple Rim and 11" Frosted Top Medium Crown Head
  • Deering -06- 20 Hole Bell Bronze Tone Ring
  • Deering Brass Notched Tension Hoop
