Deering Vega Old Tyme Wonder Open Back Banjo

Brand:

Instrument Categories:

The Deering Vega Old Tyme Wonder is built for Clawhammer banjoists who prefer a scooped neck to ease plucking their banjos over the fingerboard.

This traditional open back banjo is available with an 11 or 12 inch rim. The 12 inch rim provides a warmer, thicker ‘Old Tyme’ sound.

Deering builds in a traditional ‘frailing scoop’ that allows more room for the fingers and thumb of the right hand to pluck the strings over the fingerboard.

The Old Tyme Wonder rim is built of steamed and bent violin grade maple, with a fiberskyn head installed over the rim and a classic “no knot tailpiece” is attached for a traditional old time sound. This is a light weight banjo that is made especially for musicians who want the warmer tones that go well in a string band with a fiddle and bass.

The 12 inch rim on the Deering Vega Old Tyme Wonder provides the mellowest banjo sound with a lovely full tone. The Vega Old Tyme Wonder is reliable and exceptional in tone, playability, versatility and responsiveness, with a round wooody tone perfect for old time string bands.
