The Deering Dropkick Murphy Tenor Goodtime openback banjo is an all maple banjo with a hard rock maple neck and a violin grade maple rim which delivers a great tone.

Like Jeff DaRosa of the Dropkick Murphys says "Its never a bad time with Goodtime" and we can not agree more. Case sold separately.
Has a bright sound of maple that projects well.
Easy to play with clarity of note separation and round full bodied tone.
