    Why A Goodtime Banjo

    The Pot

    1. DEERING GOODTIME SMILE BRIDGE

    The responsive sensitivity of the maple, with the hard, dense ebony top contributes to the Goodtime banjos clear, resonant responsiveness.

    2. QUIET TAILPIECE

    Specially selected metal is used to prevent the tailpiece from making “its own sound” and muddying up the banjo’s tone. The violin maple rim is supposed to sing, not your tailpiece.

    3. STABILITY ENHANCING J-HOOKS

    The proprietary Deering J-hooks are wider at the top to prevent twisting off the tension hoop when tightening the banjo head.

    4. QUIET COORDINATOR ROD

    Made of special alloy that is strong and does not interfere with the singing resonance of the violin maple rim.

    5. 3-PLY VIOLIN GRADE MAPLE RIM

    The maple in the Goodtime rim is the exact wood used in the finest violins in the world. Only Deering puts this professional grade 3-ply maple rim in a banjo in this price range.

    The Neck

    6. SEALED GEARED TUNERS

    Five high quality geared tuning machines make tuning the Goodtime banjo easy, accurate and fun. Too many student banjos are cursed with poor quality tuners, so the students blame themselves for an out of tune banjo when it’s the tuner that is at fault.

    7. ROCK MAPLE NECK

    This fine grained, dense, extremely hard, wood creates a stable neck, and imparts a bright, crisp quality to the Goodtime banjo tone.
