The Deering Eagle II tenor banjo features a tone that is very balanced from string to string. The open 4th string produces a rich bass note that isn't found on all tenor banjos. The 1st string is bright and crisp without being harsh. Each string is clear and rich sounding all the way up the neck.

The Eagle II banjo features the patented Deering Twenty-Ten Tone Ring which is a completely original Deering design that is unlike any other traditional tone ring. It produces a high quality sound that is versatile for many styles of playing. It represents a refinement in the quality of banjo tone, something that allows the player to soar to new heights. It is perfect for the player who wants a professional quality banjo that he can use for playing many styles of music.
