Special means it has our Patent Pending Goodtime Special Tone Ring - The Goodtime Special Openback banjo produces a louder sweet bell tone than the lowest priced Goodtime Openback because it has a tone ring. Perfect for clawhammer or frailing styles of playing, the volume of tone is a wonderful surprise to players who pick up this unassuming openback banjo to find a real prize.

If you’re looking for a banjo with good volume, tone, and prefer to keep the cost as low as possible, but you want a banjo that will perform well in a jam session or band setting, feel comfortable, fret correctly, then this is your banjo. If you prefer to play clawhammer or frailing style and want that openback sound but still want a louder voice the Goodtime Special Openback is the banjo for you. You get a very affordable quality American made banjo when you choose a Goodtime and you can do just that, play it and have a really good time.
