Description

A world class tenor banjo made of curly maple wood that is appreciated for its crisp tone with great highs and distinctive bass response.

Description Specs Media

The heart of the Deering Calico banjo is the Deering bronze tone-ring, precisely fitted to the three-ply violin grade maple rim. The Deering -06- tone ring produces a beautiful, balanced overtone spectrum. Its weight is ideal for most styles played on the banjo. A softer touch will provide you with as much sustain as you ever want, a sharper attack will produce a distinct pop and accurate note separation. You will notice no dead spots over the entire fingerboard. The beautiful highs and powerful well rounded bass is the result of intense study of alloys and shapes resulting in superb sound.
