A very special professional-grade 6-string banjo. Made in USA. Hardshell case included.

The Deluxe is one of the most popular models of the Deering line. The gloss finish, ebony fingerboard, diamond shaped inlays, and extra trim on the back of the resonator and along the edge of the peghead are features that make a more elegant instrument.

Perfect for guitar players, this banjo is tuned like a guitar (E,A,D,G,B,E) the D-6 is a professional banjo that is heavier than the B-6 with the full rim and tone ring design of a bluegrass banjo. It has more volume and sustain than the B-6 and at 11 lbs, you’ll tend to play it sitting down and resting the banjo on both legs. It will fill the room with great music with a light touch of your fingers or flat pick! You can relax using light touch and get a much more vibrant and responsive tone playing the D6 with considerably less effort than you use in playing a guitar. Guitar players have nothing more to learn, just play your favorite songs because it's a guitar that sounds like a banjo.

Note: Our banjos are individually inspected, set up and tuned by the staff in Georgia. We are banjo players, so we set them up the way we want to play them! Each banjo is in tune when we carefully pack it for shipment. Climate conditions and travel will affect the tuning, so it may need to be fine-tuned before playing.
