Deering: Deluxe

Submitted by raysplace on 5/8/2013

Where Purchased: Turtle Hill Banjo Co. Bryantown MD

Year Purchased: 2013
Price Paid: 2150.00 ($US)


This jewel is perfect. The sound is strong, clear. The tone is rich and loud with out any buzzing.

Sound Rating: 10


I think one reason my banjo sounds great is because of the expert setup. Dave asked me numerous questions about my playing and what I expected from the Deering. It has factory spikes on frets 7,9 & 10.
i have not made any setup changes.

Setup Rating: 9


The banjo is mahogany with a high gloss finish. Has engraved inlays and Ebony finger board with mother of pearl diamond shaped inlays
I did not find any imperfections.

Appearance Rating: 9


I think the Deering will be my last banjo. Well, until I hear something better. It certainly seems like it will last forever.

I think the bronze tone ring really stands out. I might replace the strings with medium weight.
