Deering Boston Longneck

Stock Id: DEERING-B-LN

Tuned to an open E Chord, the Boston Long Neck is easier to sing with for deep voices. Made popular by Pete Seeger and the Kingston Trio the Long Neck banjo has a greater range for all styles of music. The Boston Long Neck is a very stable, good sounding banjo that travels well and isn’t as heavy as other more expensive models. The innovative steel rim construction of the drum provides a clear, crisp banjo tone that rings like a bell, records well and plays easily. There are higher-end banjos out there that do have better, warmer sound, but they you won’t get one for the cost of a Boston.

Left-hand model also available. (DEERING-B-LNL)
