More Details from The Deering Banjo Company:

This Golden Wreath banjo is a beautiful banjo that is an accurate reproduction of the classic banjos of the 1930’s, but at a fraction of the originals cost. The mahogany neck is highlighted with ivoroid binding, and duplicates the feel of the originals in neck width, depth and the taper from nut to heel. Mahogany gives you a crisp yet sweet tone that makes playing the banjo a pleasure and a joy. The two way adjustable truss rod is smooth, accurate, easy to use, and ensures superb playability without buzzing which allows players of all styles to adjust the banjos action to their own unique requirements. The glued in frets ensure perfect fretting accuracy, long term stability and ease of re-fretting.

The unplated Deering -06- 20-hole bronze tone-ring that is fitted to the 3-ply rock maple rim is an exact replica of the most sought after pot configuration of the famous 1930’s banjos. The cast one piece resonator flange is the exact zinc alloy with the same mass and design of the original; these are the key ingredients to achieve the classic sound.
The deep mahogany resonator has two concentric rings inlaid into the back. The depth of the internally tapered side walls is to the exact specifications of the originals, and gives that rich, hollow character that is so desirable; making the banjo more responsive, clearer and helps highlight the bell like harmonics that banjoists need and want.

Each banjo we supply is individually set up in our on-site Banjo Specialist Workshop here at Eagle Music. Any Banjo purchased from Eagle will be fully SET UP, checked for intonation and playability and tuned ready for playing straight out of the box!
