Deering Boston 6-String Acoustic/Electric

Deering Boston 6-String Acoustic/Electric

Brand: Deering | Stock Id: DEERING-B-6AE

Tuned like a guitar, guitar players can get up and go with this 6-string banjo. Our top selling 6-string banjo – now as an acoustic/electric model. This banjo is the preferred sound in country recording studios and in non-traditional bands. Taylor Swift uses this banjo on her Grammy award winning song “Mean”. This banjo has big resonant bass notes that you don’t find on a 5-string banjo, and also crisp highs for that beautiful banjo tone. Just plug it in and it’s amplified with a great acoustic tone of the Kavanjo banjo pickup!

It has big resonant bass notes that you don’t find on a 5-string banjo, and also crisp highs for that beautiful banjo tone. When plugged in, the Kavanjo pick up brings the Boston 6 to life.

Use a standard guitar cable to run your Boston 6 through your favorite amp, pedals, or straight into a DI box.
