Great instrument, very nice sound
Brutuklumpus, 16.05.2018
After getting started with the cheap banjo by Harley-Benton (for the entry it was absolutely fine) it was high time for a decent instrument.
So in Treppendorf / Burgebrach tried everything that was in stock at Banjos (and that were some ...).
The Deering Eagle II finally convinced me, because I liked the sound best of all. Another Deering (Sierra, about 200.-Euro more expensive) was still in the shortlist, because the difference in sound is low and ultimately a matter of taste.
I've flirted with the Recording King for € 899, a lower price range, but the Deering had a decidedly softer yet richer, more beautiful and "banjo-typical" sound.
The banjo is rock solid, the beautiful inlays on the neck very finely made, the tailor-made suitcase just as noble as the whole instrument. The vortex mechanics are precise, even after a few hours, retuning is rarely necessary.
The only "negative" is the name "Mumford & Sons model" (who can come up with such a kick?), But that is only on the purchase contract, not on the instrument itself and should be forgotten.
It's worth noting that the banjo is relatively heavy compared to the others I've tried. I am glad to have chosen the solid and padded belt of Minotaur (which does not twist and twist ...).
All in all, a great instrument, great sound, I can recommend (even after a few weeks now) all around!

A dream!
Kermit the Frog, 16.05.2018
A beautiful instrument. The sound is indescribable and the workmanship impeccable. You only hear / read good things about Deering. What can I say, I was not disappointed and can recommend this instrument to anyone looking for a high quality and wonderful sounding banjo.
