Description
 

If you already play guitar and have thought that it would be fun to learn to play the banjo here is your instrument. Now you can play banjo with the same chords and fingering you already know. It's great for those songs that would sound better if played on a banjo. All our 6-strings feature an arched ebony fingerboard with mother-of pearl inlays and 22 frets and compensated bridges for accurate intonation. One of the most appealing aspects of our 6-string banjos is the fact that our necks are sleek and comfortable - easy to play. The 6-string banjos were used in the early 1900's in some of the jazz bands but they never really caught on because the sound wasn't quite right. We are the only makers today who have mastered the 6-string banjos to bring out a wonderful banjo tone and make the instrument a joy to play. Many guitar players are now discovering the new sound available from playing a Deering 6-string banjo. Anything you play on a guitar can also be played on the 6-string banjo. It can be flat-picked or finger-picked equally well. We string it with extra light acoustic guitar strings, however it does perform well with other string gauges. The sound is excellent!

The B-6, Boston 6-string is lighter in weight. The pot utilizes the same steel rim construction found in our Boston 5-string. In the 6-string banjo this creates excellent note distinction, clarity, and sparkling crispness which makes an ideal recording instrument. This banjo also comes with a FREE Deluxe Deering hardshell banjo case!

The Deering B6 banjo is designed to give any guitar player the immediate ability to play a banjo by transferring any guitar technique instantly without having to learn any new fingerings, chords, techniques, etc.
PLAYABILITY:

The Deering B6 has a slender, low profile neck that is shaped for fast accurate fingering. The neck is 1 3/4" wide at the nut so it is suitable for all styles of guitar techniques. The ebony fingerboard is polished to a fast smooth surface. By Guitar standards, the neck is very comfortable and natural feeling.

  • Deering's fret work is accurate and precise to ensure accurate intonation over the entire fingerboard.
  • The Deering compensated maple and ebony bridge further ensures precise intonation over the entire range of notes.
  • The sealed guitar tuners are smooth, positive and accurate in operation.
  • The two way adjustable truss rod is precise and easy to use and ensures superb playability without buzzing.
TONE:

The B6 steel rim is 3/16 of an inch thick. It's mass and hardness gives the banjo a clear, crisp tone. It also makes this banjo powerfully dynamic.

  • The B6 steel rim rings like a bell.

The massive strength of the steel rim allows the head to be tightened as tight as desired. The string pressure of the six strings is heavier than a five string and the head can be tightened to any desired tension with ease on the super strong steel rim. Banjos with aluminum or soft wood pots are not strong enough to handle the tight tension that is crucial for beautiful banjo tone that every player wants.

LIFETIME WARRANTY:
While most imported banjos and guitars in this price range have little or no warranty, Deering's world class quality features allow Deering to easily offerer a Lifetime Warranty on the B6 banjo.
