Deering Goodtime Special Openback - Left Hand

With its bright sound that anybody can recognize, this banjo is special for a reason.
The Goodtime Special Openback banjo cuts through sonic landscapes with its bright and powerful tone thanks to its built-in tone ring and openback construction style. This makes it the ideal banjo for students learning the clawhammer or frailing styles of playing, as well as those learning the more traditional bluegrass.
Wood that Sings
The Goodtime Openback is made from Mahogany, which gives it a sweet and bright tone, but without the sustain of other woods like maple or walnut. You can even add maple to the banjo for free, and add more brightness and clarity to your tone. This is perfect for beginners practicing their note separation.
Big Sound, Big Value
With its classic looks and feel, The Openback Special has become Deering’s flagship banjo. It’s also a favorite among beginners, with everything you need in a high-quality banjo at an affordable price.
For the beginner looking for a powerful and elegant banjo to begin their banjo-playing career with, the Deering Goodtime Special Openback is for you.
