Deering: Deluxe

Submitted by JerseyJoe on 7/23/2004

Where Purchased: Folk of the Wood

Year Purchased: 2004
Price Paid: 1700 ($US)


Sounds powerful. In fact I stuffed a tshirt into the resonator becase it was too loud to play in my house. It sounds great all the way up the neck. I only rated it a 9 because I'm not good enough to make it sound like a 10 yet.

Sound Rating: 9


FOTW set it up perfectly. It was the 2nd banjo I bought from them.

Setup Rating: 10


Not too fancy, but very nice just the same. I ordered it standard. See the Deering website.

Appearance Rating: 9


Very solid and stays in tune like a champ even though I bend the heck out of the strings.

Reliability Rating: 10

I absolutely recommend it. I play bluegrass, rock, and some funky stuff and this banjo sounds great all around.
