Deering Eagle II Six String Banjo

Brand:

Instrument Categories:

 The Deering Eagle II 6 String Banjo is a unique addition to the world of 6-string banjos! This model is now discontinued but we have some stock.

The Deering Eagle II 6 String Banjo is built using a Maple neck with unbound ebony fingerboard with standard 26.25 inch scale length and 22 frets. The fingerboard and head have Engraved mother of pearl position markers, headstock inlay and Deering banner.

The Pot uses a Maple rim with Deering 2010 Tone Ring, Deering Eagle II hardware with 6-string tailpiece and bridge.

A Gloss Walnut finish is applied to the entire instrument.

This instrument is based on the Eagle II, with the Deering 2010 Tone Ring and a 6-string tailpiece, Hardware is nickel plated and sealed, Deering branded Gotoh gears are mounted at the head.

The Deering Eagle II Six String Banjo lays like a cross between a banjo and a guitar! The feel is more percussive than a guitar, due to the head. We will of course set the instrument up to the player’s requirements.

Deering hardshell case included.

Here’s Grant McNeill on the Deering Eagle II 6 String Banjo:

“The new Deering Eagle tone ring (often called the 2010 ring), is the warmest and roundest sounding of the Deering family of rings. This new design brass ring combined with the Eagle plate-style flange and heavy red maple rim gives a lovely air-like sweetness to the trebles but still provides that classic Deering sustain and power.

The warm tone of the Eagle makes it particularly suitable for 6 string banjos which can often exhibit harsh overtones.

In my opinion, installing a 6 string neck on the Eagle pot has created possibly THE BEST 6 string banjo one can hear, anywhere, at any price.

Grant MacNeill”
