Deering Goodtime Solana 6-String …

Deering Goodtime Solana 6-String  ...Deering – Deering Goodtime Solana 6-String Banjo
With repeated requests from its customers to create a 6-string Goodtime banjo, Deering focused on giving the customers what they wanted with the Goodtime Solana 6. The Goodtime Solana 6 is a modern 6-string banjo designed to bring out the creativity in the player and features all of the American craftsmanship and quality that owners of Goodtime banjos have come to expect.The Solana 6 stands out from the pack thanks to is its nylon strings which offers the player a sweet, mellow tone akin to a classical guitar, but with the bright undertones of a banjo.The versatility of the Solana 6 is rounded off with a piezo pickup that sits directly under the patented East Indian rosewood bridge plate, formerly seen only on Deering’ Phoenix 6-string banjo. The bridge plate is placed underneath the hand crafted Deering bridge and is designed to even out the effects of the string vibration resulting in an increased sustain, decrease in boominess, and less feedback allowing the player more freedom in a live performing situation when partnered with the piezo pickup. The sound of the Solana 6 is further enhanced by the larger Grand 12 rim which creates ample breathing room for the natural low end of the Solana 6, making a bold statement right out of the box.The rim of the Solana 6 is constructed of the same 3-ply violin grade maple that is at the heart of the entire Deering banjo line up. The rock maple neck features East Indian Rosewood ring style inlays, a classical guitar inspired peghead, and smooth, accurate classical guitar tuners with pearloid buttons. The beautiful blonde maple of the Solana 6 is further complimented by a dark East Indian Rosewood tailpiece which bares the Deering name.Made in the U.S.A.Strings6 Nylon StringsNeckClassical Guitar Style Peghead & TunersBlonde Rock Maple Neck22 Pressed In Nickel Silver FretsRosewood and Maple Ring InlaysDurable Satin FinishTuned Like a GuitarPotGrand 12″ 3-ply Violin Grade Maple RimTone Enhancing Patented Bridge PlatePiezo PickupTop Frosted High Crown HeadSteel Tension Hoop16 Bracket Shoes16 Flat Hooks with 9/32 Hex NutsEast Indian Rosewood TailpieceNickel Plated ArmrestNickel Plated HardwareTriangle Box for CarryingGig Bag or Hardshell Case Sold SeparatelyToneHas a bright sound of maple that projects well.Easy to play with clarity of note separation.TunedE, A, D, G, B, E In Standard Guitar TuningCan easily be tuned in other tunings as well.Comes with nylon stringsDimensionsNeck Width at the Nut 2Scale Length Nut to Bridge 26.25Rim Diameter 12″Overall Instrument Length 39Weight Approx. 5 lbs

Deering Artisan Goodtime Ii 5-String …

Deering Artisan Goodtime Ii 5-String  ...Deering – Deering Artisan Goodtime Ii 5-String Resonator Banjo
With a Bluegrass resonator back for projection, the Artisan Goodtime Two banjo has a 3-ply violin grade maple rim and produces a bright and clear tone that projects well and is louder than its open back counterpart. The Artisan Two is enhanced with a Rich Brown stain, white detailing and spikes at 7, 9, and 10. The use of spikes enables you to expand your playing from the key of G to easily play in the keys of A, B and C. Here is a banjo you can have right there by your easy chair or take out an play in a jam. It holds its own as a bluegrass banjo for anyone looking for a lighterweight option and has the looks to boot. It’s great for hours of practice with an accurate neck that is as comfortable as can be. You’ll appreciate how light it is when you reach over to pick it up and enjoy playing it. Most people who get a Goodtime banjo keep it because they love it even when they step up to their beautiful Deering banjo. The Goodtime banjo still maintains a special place in their life and this is why you don’t see a lot of Goodtime banjos on the used market. It’s a banjo you can take anywhere. Midnight MapleIn the wake of the widely reported over harvesting of exotic woods, commonly used for fingerboards, Deering Banjos has developed Midnight Maple the result of over four years of research and development (as well as a great deal of patience) to produce a high quality fingerboard that is ethically sustainable, readily available in the US and that could be developed and manufactured in house. Unlike stained maple boards commonly found on instruments of the past, Deering has developed technology to penetrate the tight grain of the rock maple, all the way through the wood. The result is a completely dyed board, made right here in the US from an extremely readily available material. No raw wood shows through from string wear on the fingerboard and stain does not come off on a players hands. Deer

Deering Goodtime Americana Banjo 12 In. …

Deering Goodtime Americana Banjo 12 In.  ...Deering – Deering Goodtime Americana Banjo 12 In. Rim
The Americana is the first 5-string banjo from Deering to be fitted with their new Grand 12 rim, which gives the banjo a stronger bass response and a much warmer tone. The fullness and warmth of the larger rim is further enhanced by the addition of a 12 Renaissance head which beautifully complements the banjo both visually and sonically.Continuing the long-standing Goodtime philosophy of offering the best value American-made banjos available, the Americana is the lowest-priced 12 model on the market today and retains the distinctive natural blonde Goodtime aesthetics. In keeping with the rest of the Goodtime line, this banjo also features guitar-style tuners, a rock maple neck, nickel-plated hardware, and hardwood inlays.Played with an old-time style technique, the Americana is reminiscent of banjos from a period when larger rims were more prevalent making the 12 a great setup for playing old-time music. A traditional 11 banjo with a frosted top head has a far brighter sound and will cut more. Since the combination of the Grand 12 rim and the Renaissance head makes for a wonderfully laid back sound in comparison, the Americana lends itself perfectly for musicians looking to use the banjo to back up a vocalist or another instrument, instead of playing the a lead instrument role.
