Deering: Maple Blossom

Submitted by Surveyor on 8/31/2009

Where Purchased: BHO

Year Purchased: 2007
Price Paid: 1,500 ($US) (bought USED)

Sound

Full bright and deep. It has a Huber ring in it and its set up trick. The Price tail piece seems to add something also.
I play all kinds of music so this banjo is used for more then blue grass. Its loud with a brighter sound. I actually would like to mellow it some but haven't played with it yet.

Overall Comments

This is a great banjo. I highly recommend it to anyone. They have their own sound. Deering is Deering and Gibson is Gibson and so on. The Maple Blossom is obviously maple and is bright and beautiful.
