Buy your Deering The MB-6 Maple Blossom Six String Banjo from Eagle Music Shop and receive our premier workshop setup at no extra cost.

The Deering Maple Blossom is an excellent 6-string banjo with a clear crisp tone. The Eastern rock maple neck and resonator are stained a walnut colour, and trimmed in white binding with a decorative black stripe. The feel of binding provides a more comfortable neck. Flower shaped mother-of-pearl inlays are set in an arched ebony fingerboard. The three ply maple rim, sand cast virgin bell bronze tone-ring and zinc flange construction generate an excellent tone in the Maple Blossom.
