Thread Name: Deering Goodtime Banjo
Subject: RE: BS: Deering Goodtime Banjo
I used a Deering Goodtime for about 2 years and was very happy with it. I outfitted it with a fyberskin head and 5th string capo, playing it at gigs and on our second recording. One of the best things about it is that it fits well into small group acoustic situations without drowning the others out. Not just a "beginners banjo" IMHO. I also found it pleasant to be playing a banjo that didn't weigh enough to feel like an anchor around my neck.
