Banjos have resurfaced over the past several years with the popularity of such bands as Mumford & Sons, the Avett Brothers, The Old Crow Medicine Show Wagon and more. We stock some of the best made banjos in the country in both open back and resonator models.
The Deering ‘Flagship Series’ are the essence of the original banjos that Greg Deering started making around the time of the Deering Company’s inception. They come packed with original features including beautiful inlay work, choice of wood, ebony finger boards, gloss finish on select models and include a hard shell case along with a life time warranty.
Deering has breathed new life into the Vega name, blending over a century of tradition with Deering's banjo building expertise, to create a range of heritage rich open back and longneck banjos that are as integral to the modern folk sounds of The Avett Brothers as they were to Pete Seeger’s personal revolution.
Made in the USA at the Deering shop with the same tooling used to make the top of the line banjos, the Goodtime banjos are some of the lowest priced American made banjos. They are so accurate; many professionals have recorded with Goodtime banjos. Heralded by teachers and artists alike, the Goodtime banjo is a great starter banjo.
These open-back banjos are all hand-made in the Appalachian Mountains with native hardwoods. All banjos come with a limited lifetime warranty to the original owner for materials and workmanship on all wooden components not including the bridge or fingerboard. Every banjo is a piece of art, and a delight to play.
Like the original Montgomery Ward mail order instruments from the first half of the century, Dirty 30s banjos are the ideal companion for singer-songwriters, folk stylists or traveling troubadours. The Recording King Dirty 30s Resonator Banjo packs excellent playability and a historic vibe into a retro-infused package.
