Description: Lowe Vintage is an authorized dealer for Deering Banjo Company! From Deering's website:
Now with a featuring the new Grand 12" Rim, this banjo is perfect for old time clawhammer banjoists. The wider 12" rim brings out more bass response and truly gives a great old time banjo tone when paired with the fiberskyn head. Featuring a scooped neck to ease playing over the fingerboard. We build in a traditional "scoop" that allows more room for the fingers and thumb of the right hand to pluck the strings over the fingerboard.
It is the mellowest banjo sound, a lovely full tone. The Old Tyme Wonder is reliable and exceptional in tone, playability, versatility and responsiveness, with a round woody tone perfect for old time string bands.
