The American Made, Goodtime banjo is easy to play, handy, rugged, easy to adjust and has a sparkling tone comparable or superior to other brands of banjos costing three times as much.

The Goodtime banjo has a slender low profile neck that is easy to finger and comfortable for large and small hands. The high quality rock maple wood contributes to the bright sparkling sound of the Goodtime banjo. This hard, dense wood is also very strong and stable. The fret work is accurate and precise to ensure accurate intonation over the entire fingerboard.

The single coordinator rod in the pot easily and effectively adjusts the playability so that the strings are close to the fingerboard and are easy to press down. This allows the beginner and the professional to adjust the action (height of the strings) to their own particular style. All five tuners are geared and easy to tune. The tailpiece is extremely strong and easily adjustable to maximize tone by raising or lowering it.

Light Weight:
The Goodtime banjo weighs about 4 pounds so it is light enough for children to hold and play and is ideal for travelling, camping, hiking, taking to the beach and provides a vibrant singing banjo tone in any situation.
The Pot is 11 inch diameter and is the standard size. This means replacement heads are easy to find.

The multi-ply pot is made of birch and maple. Both woods are hard and dense and contribute to the bright crisp sound of the Goodtime banjo. Though it is a low priced banjo, the use of professional grade woods and the careful fitting and design of the parts give the Goodtime banjo a musical tone that has many of the qualities demanded by professional banjoists and entertainers. With its sparkling and sweet sound it is fun to learn and play and enjoyable for family members to listen to while the student is learning.

The Goodtime banjo is made in the U.S.A. and comes with a one year warranty.
