Derringers is please to be able to sell you the fantastic Deering Boston 5-String Banjo. This is an instrument that reeks with quality and tradition. Greg Deering is arguably the best banjo luthier in the world and his level of excellence has captured a great following of master 5-string banjo players such as Tony Trishka, Eddie Adcock, Jens Kruger, George Grove () and was much lauded by banjoist and river boat captain, John Hartford (Oh Brother Where Art Thou, Down from the Mountain, Glen Campbell show and writer of "Gentle On My Mind"). Uniquely Deering, The Boston banjo breaks with tradition and provides a professional quality sound at a lower price point by creating the drum from 3/16″ rolled steel which rings like a tone ring and upgrading the accuracy of tuning with guitar style tuners with a higher gear ratio. The uniquely Deering inlay pattern gives you visual beauty enhancing the great performance.
