The Patent Pending Goodtime Special Tone Ring is a new feature released in 2010 on the Goodtime Special banjo. Designed by Deering, the new Goodtime Special steel tone ring produces a powerfully crisp, bright, sparkling tone, a considerable step up in tone from the original tone ring that was featured on our Goodtime Special banjos. The volume of tone is a wonderful surprise to players. If you're looking for a banjo with good volume and tone, and prefer to keep the cost as low as possible, then this is the banjo for you. This banjo will perform well in a jam session or band setting, feel comfortable, fret correctly, and be a stable instrument you can play for years to come.

Glad to see that Long and McQuade finally carries Deering banjos. I've had my goodtime special for 3 years now, and its the best entry/intermediate level banjo on the market. The quality and sound of Deering banjos is like no other. Fender and Gold Tone banjos don't even come close to a Deering, even comparing the lower priced openbacks, Deering is the best!
