A resonator back provides more projection of sound in Deering Goodtime Two. It's made here in the USA at the Deering shop with the same tooling used to make top-of-the-line banjos.
- Blonde slender rock maple neck, 3-ply violin-grade maple rim and blonde maple resonator
- Sealed geared tuners and geared 5th string tuner
- Pressed-in nickel silver frets
- Steel coordinator rod
- 11" rim diameter, 13.875" resonator diameter
- Deering fiddle-shaped peghead
- Deering patented Goodtime tailpiece
Please note: Deering instruments use a coated top banjo head. The manufacturing process can leave overspray on the edge of the head that rubs off during normal use. This overspray can also be removed with a microfiber cloth.
Greg Deering designed the Goodtime banjos because there were no low-priced banjos of sufficient quality for people to learn on without difficulty. He remembers what it was like to want a good banjo and not be able to afford one, so his gift to others is the Goodtime banjo line. Designed for success, Goodtime banjos are the lowest-priced American made banjos. They are so good many professionals have recorded with Goodtime banjos.
Goodtime Two weighs six pounds, about the weight of a guitar. Goodtime Two has a natural blonde maple with a satin finish to protect it. The rich, golden tone and the reverberation off the resonator sound great. You can definitely tell a volume difference between open back and a Goodtime Two. The sound waves aren't getting trapped between you and the banjo, which makes a pretty big difference.
If you want a great, low-priced bluegrass banjo for travel and leisure that plays correctly and is durable, this is the best buy on the market!
