They were hooked on banjo for life !The Goodtime banjo is a superb starter banjo, ideal for any beginner but a common choice for summertime "travel banjo" for pro players too.

You get this banjo in fully playable condition – not just out of the box.     As with all of our banjos, it is thoroughly set up to professional standards.  _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
The Deering Goodtime banjo construction notes:     Built entirely in rock-maple.  The rim is “wood tone ring” style. The head rests directly on the wood rim which is machined to a flat-head tone-ring contour for a warmer, less edgy or brash tone.  Wood tone-ring construction lends itself well to low priced banjos. the cheap metal tone-rings used in many low prices arguably don’t improve the tone, enhancing harsh and undesirable overtones.    The fully US made Deering Goodtime is has lovely warm and mellow tone yet full and clear highs…certainly the sweetest sounding entry level banjo in this price range. ( in my humble opinion of course ! ).  The banjo is complete setup with standard action at 5/64 and head tension tuned to G#.  Fret level is carefully checked on each instrument and all of our  banjos will leave our shop in fully playable condition.  It is strung with new D’Addario light gauge strings… but I would be happy to install whatever gauge you prefer and setup according to your right hand attack and action expectations.   I have been building, restoring and servicing banjos since 1977. We have 6 full-time Luthiers on staff; all the skills and expertise needed to setup your banjo to suit you.___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
