Deering Goodtime Junior Banjo, Kids or Travel Banjo

Deering Goodtime JR (Junior) Banjo


Made in America. Easy to play! Durable and easy to maintain! The Goodtime banjo produces a vibrant ringing tone from its natural finished violin grade maple rim. At only 4 pounds, the weight makes it ideal for both children and adults to play and to travel with conveniently.


The Goodtime Jr. it is a shorter scale version of its famous Goodtime Openback sibling, making it the perfect beginner banjo for kids or players of smaller stature who are looking to add a splash of fun to their playing!


The iconic blonde maple aesthetic of the Goodtime banjos is accented with silver appointments, including the tension hoop, tailpiece and coordinator rod, as well as beautiful matching fret marker inlays. 


As you play the 19 fret, 23" scale Goodtime Jr., the medium strings offer both physical and tonal balance across the necks shorter scale, which also makes this banjo a perfect travel or camping companion. 


Fans of the Goodtime banjos will also be happy to know that Junior retains the groundbreaking 3-ply violin grade maple rim, which has been key in helping the Goodtime sound so good for so many players. 


Don't settle for an average time. Have a Goodtime. All the time.



The responsive sensitivity of the maple, with the hard, dense ebony top contributes to the Goodtime banjos clear, resonant responsiveness.



Specially selected metal is used to prevent the tailpiece from making “its own sound” and muddying up the banjo’s tone. The violin maple rim is supposed to sing, not your tailpiece.



The proprietary Deering J-hooks are wider at the top to prevent twisting off the tension hoop when tightening the banjo head.



Made of special alloy that is strong and does not interfere with the singing resonance of the violin maple rim.



The maple in the Goodtime rim is the exact wood used in the finest violins in the world. Only Deering puts this professional grade 3-ply maple rim in a banjo in this price range.



Five high quality geared tuning machines make tuning the Goodtime banjo easy, accurate and fun. Too many student banjos are cursed with poor quality tuners, so the students blame themselves for an out of tune banjo when it’s the tuner that is at fault.



This fine grained, dense, extremely hard, wood creates a stable neck, and imparts a bright, crisp quality to the Goodtime banjo tone.
