Description

Tonally, the Goodtime Six-R is elevated by the addition of a maple resonator behind it's 11” 3-ply violin grade maple rim. Like any banjo, the addition of a resonator not only creates a hollow sound chamber, but also provides a flat surface for the sound to bounce off and project forward towards the players audience, instead of being absorbed by their body. The result is a significantly fuller, clearer and more vibrant tone.

Strings come courtesy of Elixir's XL bronze set, while other features include 6 high quality guitar style tuners, 26 ¼” scale length, ovangkol block inlays, a Deering designed Goodtime 6 string tailpiece and frosted top head.
The Goodtime Six banjos were not designed to replace the guitar, but rather complement it. It affords guitarists the chance to play what they already know with unimaginably creative results.

Beautiful instrument with a wonderfully resonant sound. Construction and finish appear to be of a very high standard, as you'd expect from Deering.
