The Deering Vega Campfire Long Neck Banjo Specification:
Greg Deering has always said that the "Magic is in the music" and banjos are a way to help create that magic!
Inspired by the partnership of Deering banjos and Woodsongs Old-Time radio hour the Woodsongs Campfire Long Neck bridges the gap between the Boston and Vega #2 long neck banjos. Tuned E the lower range of this light weight Mahogany long neck is the ideal banjo for for five string Folk stylings, sing alongs around the campfire or any where music lovers gather together.
A Mahogany, warm and woody, light weight longneck banjo, the Woodsongs Campfire Longneck is a collaboration between Michael Jonathan of Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour and the Deerings to create a banjo like the one Michael plays that is affordable for his broad audiences.
Featuring a violin grade maple rim without a tone ring, you get a warm, round note that is great for singing along. Perfect for the up and coming musician, this banjo opens the doors to a broader range, allowing you to play in the lower key of E in addition to being able to capo the strings at the third fret and also play in the standard key of G.
The new Vega banjos are the culmination of years of evolution and development, producing powerful, folk and early style banjos that are as much at home in today’s music as they were in years past. The sounds of these banjos are ideal for old time music, fingerstyle, clawhammer, folk, classical, ragtime, and for classic turn of the century parlor music.
Vega banjos are also a perfect choice for any player who wants a powerful, versatile banjo that is not too heavy. (Try these with a few bluegrass licks and you’ll see what we mean by versatile.) Surpassing early Vega banjos in quality, parts, and craftsmanship, the new Vega banjos by Deering blend the best of today’s technology with yesterday’s classic tones.
