Deering's newest and most affordable professional grade Openback 5-string banjo. The Eagle II banjo is a whole new breed of banjo. It features the ground breaking, patent-pending 2010 Tone Ring which is a completely original Deering design that is unlike any other traditional tone ring. It produces a high quality sound that is versatile for many styles of playing. While the sound is uniquely Eagle, it represents a refinement in the quality of banjo tone, something that allows the player to soar to new heights. It is perfect for the player who wants a professional quality banjo that he can use for playing many styles of music.

Want railroad spikes? We install HO-gauge railroad spikes free when you purchase a banjo from us. We recommend installing them on frets 7 and 9 (A and B). This serves as a capo for the 5th string, an idea that was developed and used by Earl Scruggs himself. We use them, and so do most of the professional players we know. When you're playing, you don't really notice the spikes because they're out of the way, but they're always there when you need them. Simply slide the 5th string under the spike. When you're done, slide it out. If you want spikes, let us know in the comments box at checkout.

Note: Our banjos are individually inspected, set up and tuned by the Banjo.com 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
