Deering 5-Boston 5-String Banjo

Main Photo
Description

This is "used" in name only! A true 10 out of 10 condition!

A great jamming banjo that records well, uniquely Deering, The Boston Banjo breaks with tradition and provides a professional quality sound at a lower price point by creating the drum from 3/16" rolled steel which rings like a tone ring.

The powerful and dynamic sound of the Boston comes from that steel rim which creates a bright, clear, crisp tone. The mahogany neck and resonator are satin finished and the precise fretwork in the polished ebony fingerboard makes the intonation accurate and the playing surface fast and effortless. The slender, low-profile Deering neck is comfortable for all hand sizes. Handmade in the USA. Includes case.

"The interesting thing about the steel rim is that when we first started making it we went to the San Diego Bluegrass Club. When we got out of the car we could hear the parking lot picking going on and there would always be one banjo that I could hear all the way across the parking lot. We made a game out of going and finding out whose banjo that was, and over a period of time we started to notice that almost every time it was a Boston. That steel rim has a really good clarity of tone. It carries really well and will project beyond banjos that cost a lot more. It is a really good jamming banjo. We call it the Boston because of the banjo heritage of the city of Boston. Over a hundred years ago the whole Mecca of banjos and the banjo world was centered around the city of Boston." Greg Deering
