Well, I had an interesting experience a couple of weeks ago. I was looking for a 4-string banjo to play mostly flatpicked plectrum stuff on, to fit in with my more "folky" music. I went t to a local music store and found a used Deering 6-string that really sounded great. I was told that it was a Deering B6 Boston banjo. I took them at their word since I didn't want to pull the resonator off. Well, to make a long story short, I purchased the banjo then found out later it was a Deering Deluxe 6-string. Needless to say, I was happy to find out my banjo was better than I thought! Playing the 6-string is a blast. Right now I am tuning it to GGDGBD, with a drone high G at 6 and a drone low G at 5. It's pretty cool! Next I pan to try it with GBDGBD tuning to see how that sounds.
So, between the RK35 and the Deluxe 6-string, I think I might be set for a while!
