Product description

The newly Patented Goodtime Special Tone Ring designed by Deering produces a powerfully crisp, bright, sparkling tone, a considerable step up in tone from the original tone ring that was featured on our Goodtime Special banjos. The volume of tone is a wonderful surprise to players. If you're looking for a banjo with good volume and tone, and prefer to keep the cost as low as possible, then this is the banjo for you. This banjo will perform well in a jam session or band setting, feel comfortable, fret correctly, and be a stable instrument you can play for years to come. Tuned: g,D,G,B,D in standard G tuning Can easily be tuned in other tunings as well. Comes from the factory with light gauge strings 10, 11, 13, 21W, 10 Can be played with medium gauge as well.
