This is a great 'starter pack' for the banjo.I haven't ever played a stringed instrument before but am finding the DVD instructions easy to use.The banjo seems like decent enough quality for the beginner.The pack doesn't come with finger picks so you might want to order them separately (they're cheap).I'm having lots of fun with the banjo and DVD! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Five stars for value and quality
I do not own a Deering Goodtime but I have had a number of opportunities to play them during Dan Levenson's workshops and at at a local KC metro music store (Mountain Music Shoppe).They are outstandingly playable and represent far better value for the money than any comparably priced alternative that I have come across.

I first became interested in banjo through Stephen Wade's wonderful Banjo Dancing one man shows and decided that I wanted to begin exploring banjo on my own.At that time, late seventies, there were very few options available.The choice was buying an open back "maker" banjo at > $1000, buying a used hootenany era banjo in the $500 to $800 (often with a Pete Seeger long neck), buying an Asian disposable with flashy pearloid cosmetics and buzzy frets, or building my own (the twisted route I took.).

Several years on, I was lucky enough to be able to buy a marvelous Bart Reiter at a fairly reasonable price thanks to some shop wear.Sadly most other potential enthusiasts were still faced with either inappropriate junk or a serious investment.Let's be honest here people, a serious investment in a beginner banjo, especially one for traditional styles, should be a contradiction in terms (for clarification just look at what the icons of Round Peak clawhammer banjo were playing in their day.They were far more likely to be Silvertones than Mastertones.).

Deering has had the good sense to recognize that if they are going to sell their high end goodies, future customers need to have *sound* entry level products that will allow them to grow into a better banjo and have an uncontrollable desire to plunk down long green on a Vega #2.(a "Duh!!!" here is probably fair despite the fact that the rest of the market appears to be oblivious or perhaps has ceded the niche to Deering).The Goodtime fills the entry-level spot admirably.

Bottom line, having meandered enough:Visually the Goodtime is somewhat cheesy; sporting spray painted position markers and a non-traditional, if cheery, peg head.The neck is outstandingly playable and reflects great tradeoffs on Deering's part.Despite not having a tone ring, this little banjo is remarkably well balanced tonally, probably due to a very hard and sturdy birch/maple pot (compare it to the light plywood pots on some Asian imports).

If I had to pick an entry-level banjo with which I had to live for an extended period of time, I would happily pick a Goodtime.For that matter, if they ever get around to offering a fretless, I'll probably pick one up as a traveling companion.

While I have done business with Musician's Friend in the past and found their service to be excellent, I would encourage everyone with a good local music store to buy locally.Independent music stores will probably get you within a reasonable range of advertised "internet" prices and, in return for the tiny premium, will ensure that the setup is good and help you get wired into the community of like minded instructors, pickers and peers.

It is never too late or too soon, get busy and play.

Cheers...TG (not in the business)

  • Banjo, 23" Long (keyboard dulcimer)

3-0 out of 5 stars Information
Hello. The banjo-dulcimer you see here may be more properly known as a BulBulTrang (Spelling may be inaccurate) or as a Benju. The BulBulTrang is made in the Middle East and the product information follows this line. It was imported by the Japanese, who called it a Benju, hence Banjo. It usually has ten strings which are all tuned to the same note and usually comes with a pick and key for playing and tuning. I tune mine to a G above middle C, but that's just my choice. It has a keyboard set up in the standard Western style, but chords can't be played. If you took it apart, you'd see that it works rather like a herdy-gerdy, or, if you wish, rather like a non-fretted guitar. The keys press down little metal pieces onto the strings in positions to make notes.

Thanks.

Catlog: Musical Instruments
Manufacturer: Lark In The Morning
Sales Rank: 7717
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Product Description

These banjo mandolins have spun aluminum bodies and are well designed. The neck is attached by a large screw mechanism that also adjusts the angle of neck tilt, allowing custom action set up in minutes. Just loosen the strings and adjust the screw, retune, and that's it. The heads are mylar, and replace very easily with only seven screws, and since they use an upper tension ring design similar to their dumbek heads, the head tensions very evenly with a minimum of lugs, plus, the mylar heads are nearly indestructable, short of attack with a sharp object, and are impervious to weather changes. Tuning becomes much more stable. Another feature is their durability. They are very hard to break, and are thus a perfect travel instrument- sturdy, small, light, and loud. Tuning GDAE. Total length is 24 inches. ... Read more
