Deering Goodtime Special

Richard1631, 22.12.2016
I got this banjo as I previously had a Deering goodtime 'Crow' which is about the same, but with no metal tone ring. I had that for a number of years, and like this one - I found it to be a great banjo. Things I like about it: metal tone ring. improves the sound a lot, as the skin does not just rest on the wooden frame. Guitar machine heads. For me this is important as it helps it stay in tune a lot better than the normal banjo rotary pegs you often see on banjos. Solid maple neck. Stiff and hard, and should not bend like mahogany. Maple body. again will take a lot of pressure that a softer wood like mahogany could not. The body is made up of 3 ply maple, rather than the 12 ply you see on cheaper banjos. I once had a 12 ply bodied banjo and it did not take the strain, meaning the wood warped and came unglued, so the skin was resting on the wooden frame, rather than on the metal tone ring! Took it back to the shop and got a refund on the spot. Too expensive to fix. After that I looked around for a well made banjo that should last a lifetime, with quality metal parts that will not bend and a 3 ply body. This was the one I went for. Bright and clear. It's easy to make a banjo sound softer - just loosen the skin, but to make a soft banjo sound bright is much harder, so buy a clear bright one to start with.
Bad points? Well some people don't like the guitar machine heads. I think they are much more stable myself. I should say that my wife has the 4 string equivalent banjo to my 5 string and that's fine too. also - there is only 1 'railroad' nail on the 5th string. some people like to have more so they can change the pitch of the 5th string. I don't like them, as they hurt if you fret the string and dig into your finger end. I adapted a cheap capo instead that does a better job. Oh, by the way, It's made in America, not china like most of the other banjos available.......
