Goodtime Parlor Specification:

The sound from this banjo is incredible! The three ply violin maple rim is the same quality as found on pre war Mastertone banjos.

The Goodtime Parlor is just plain cute... It is tuned in G just the same as a 22 fret banjo, but it is 4 inches shorter with only 19 frets. Great for teaching youngsters to play! Get them started early with a banjo they can manage and you give them a lifetime of enjoyment playing the banjo. The Goodtime Parlor is affordable and is made in the USA with quality parts and designed to play right so learning is fun and easy. Whether you have big or small hands, it is fun to play.

All Deering Goodtime ‘Leader’ Banjos are unique and exclusive to Eagle Music UK, they are built by the same Craftsmen, and with the same care and tooling that is used for building the top of the line USA Deering, Vega and Tenbrooks Banjos.

A really nice sounding banjo. The size in no way limits it playability or it’s volume. It looks the part, plays the part, and sounds the part. Well done Deering.

I am a fan for the Deering range of banjos. This little banjo gives a wonderful sound. The neck is shorter, obviously and the frets are a little closer together than my full size Deering. I don’t find this causes any problems when swapping back to a full sized banjo. The quality of the instrument is wonderful as are all the Deering Banjos I’ve had. I would recommend this banjo to anyone who asked.

Tremendous banjo for the money, with a very handy scale length. Tunes better to A than G in my opinion, but try it yourself!
