New banjo!

Posted by BoneDigger on Thursday, May 9, 2013

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!
