The Deering Goodtime Solana Six is Deering’s response to repeated requests from its customers to create a 6-string Goodtime banjo. The Solana Six stands out from the pack with its nylon strings, offering a sweet, mellow tone and touch with the bright undertones of a banjo.   The Solana Six is built around a 12 inch, wood-tone-ring maple-rim pot,  fitted with a mellow Renaissance head.
This new banjo offers a warm, fat voice that is unique in the world of six string banjos. The versatility of the Solana Six is rounded off with a piezo pickup that sits directly under the Deering – patented East Indian Rosewood bridge plate. Six string banjos are harsh sounding due to the high tension of heavier gauge metal guitar strings.  But by using Nylon Strings,  the Solana Six drops the loading on the bridge down to roughly where it would be on a 5 string banjo.  The result is increased response, sustain and a more woody bass tone. Acoustically, the Solana Six nylon string banjo sounds “Old Tyme” but add the Piezo pickup and a small amplifier, and it cuts well enough to suit Irish Tenor or Trad-Jazz stylings.  The pickup gives the banjo a whole new sonic angle,  doubling the useful musical applications. Designed to be tuned and played like a standard guitar, the Deering Goodtime Solana Six can be played by anyone familiar with the guitar. Like other Deering Goodtime banjos, the Solana Six is built using hard rock maple for the neck and violin grade maple for the rim. Because it’s a six-string nylon instrument, standard classical guitar tuners are used on the head; a rosewood tailpiece accomodates the strings, and you can either use the standard classical ‘tie a knot’ methods or use ball-end classical strings. We thoroughly inspect and setup this banjo before we ship ! ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
