Banjos

There are many different kinds of banjos available, with 4, 5, or 6 strings, played either with the thumb and first two fingers of the right hand or a plectrum.  Banjos belong to a very old family of instruments. Drums with strings stretched over them can be traced throughout the Middle East, the Far East, and Africa. African slaves brought the banjo to North America. It has since become the basis for distinctively energetic music, instrumental in the later development of forms as diverse as jazz, bluegrass, folk, traditional, old time, country, rock, and others.


Deering’s American-made Goodtime banjos are well known for their ease of playability, sparkling tone, light weight, and affordability! With the addition of the Tenor model, banjoists will be able to play a wider variety of music than ever before. Popularly used for Irish music and jazz, the tenor banjo is also ideal for young children because of the shorter scaled neck.
