Special means it has our patented Goodtime Special Tone Ring – The Goodtime Special Openback banjo produces a more powerful and brighter tone because it is made with their patented steel tone ring.

This is the lowest priced Deering banjo made with a tone ring. The openback style makes it suitable for clawhammer or frailing styles of playing, while the increased brightness and volume is a wonderful surprise to players who play in the more traditional bluegrass style of play.

Left-hand model also available. (GOODTIME-GOL)
