Deering White Lotus 5 String Banjo White Oak


Instrument Categories:

Here’s another new item – the Deering White Lotus 5-String Banjo by Deering. This is a resonator back model with no exotic woods, just White Oak and Maple.    Jens Kruger gives a great demonstration of the sound in the video below.

Deering calls its sound “A strong mid range tone with good bass and vibrant highs, that is versatile for playing both Clawhammer and Bluegrass styles of playing.”

More From The Builder On The New Deering White Lotus model:

“The bluegrass inspired White Lotus banjo, named for its lotus flower inspired inlay pattern, is centered around the patented white oak rim. Notably lacking a traditional heavy tone ring, the natural white oak rim closely recreates a bright, crisp bluegrass punch, ushering in a new era in playing comfort and sound for today’s banjo player.”
