A premium quality world class 5-string banjo that is appreciated forits crisp tone with great highs and distinctive bass response. TheCalico is not only beautiful, but it is also exceptionally dynamic withboth powerful sound and response providing an excellent tool for allstyles of music. At this price point we add two features, we taper theinside of the resonator walls for added projection of tone, and we alsoadd the feature of glued-in frets. Each fret is fitted to thefingerboard and glued in place so that in the future when the frets areworn out, they can easily be replaced without chipping the fingerboard.You will gain these benefits on every model from the Calico on up theline.

The heart of the Deering Calico banjo is the Deering bronzetone-ring, precisely fitted to the three ply maple rim. The Deering -06-tone ring produces a beautiful, balanced overtone spectrum. Its weightis ideal for most styles played on the banjo. A softer touch willprovide you with as much sustain as you ever want, a sharper attack willproduce a distinct pop and accurate note separation. You will notice nodead spots over the entire fingerboard. The beautiful highs andpowerful well rounded bass is the result of intense study of alloys andshapes resulting in superb sound.
