Brand: Deering

The Goodtime Two is similar to the Goodtime Openback, featuring a natural blonde maple vibe with a satin finish to protect it. The heart of the Goodtime Two is the same 3-ply violin-grade maple rim, which when paired with the 3-ply resonator, produces a rich, golden tone and offers a significant increase in volume from its openback counterpart.

Three years after the Goodtime banjo revolutionized the banjo world, it was only natural that customers began asking us to make one with a resonator. They wanted a banjo that was as fantastic to play as the Goodtime, but that could compete in volume and projection in a jam setting. And if there is one thing Deering does well, it is to listen to the customer!

So in 1999, the Goodtime Two banjo was born!

The Goodtime Two is similar to the Goodtime Openback, featuring a natural blonde maple vibe with a satin finish to protect it. The heart of the Goodtime Two is the same 3-ply violin-grade maple rim, which when paired with the 3-ply resonator, produces a rich, golden tone and offers a significant increase in volume from its openback counterpart.

This is because any sound from the back is now not being absorbed by your body. Instead, the hard, concave surface of the resonator is providing a surface for the sound to bounce off and forward, projecting through the soundholes of the nickel-plated flange that surrounds the rim.

Additionally, the Goodtime Two weighs in at around 6lbs - about the weight of a guitar. So, if you want a great low-priced bluegrass banjo for travel and leisure that plays correctly and is durable, you should try the Goodtime Two.

As with all Goodtime models, the Goodtime Two is built in our only location, in San Diego, CA, with a huge emphasis on playability, tone, and affordability.
