Deering Phoenix™ Acoustic/Electric 6-String Banjo

$3,105.00

The Phoenix 6 String banjo has a beautiful organic tone that results in warm and well-rounded full notes. When amplified, these characteristics are enhanced by a combination of brilliant highs via the piezo pickup and warm mid range from the Kavanjo®.

As well as a master volume control, players can dial in the tone even more with the addition of a blend control, the centre position of which is marked with a centre notch. This allows for a seemingly endless combination of Kavanjo® and piezo mix, bringing out the best from both pick ups and truly enhancing the natural sound of the banjo itself.
