Deering Banjo: The Boston

Deering Banjos at Young America Music

For parking lot picking the Boston rings out loud and clear.

The thick steel rim [which is unique to the Deering line] produces a sound similar to a bronze tonering and enables you to get a much more affordable banjo.

The Boston provides exceptional tone, which is far superior to the tone of the die-cast brass tone-rings or aluminum rims of the imports.

Hey, playing is always more fun when you enjoy the sound of your banjo!

The Boston has the same adjustable mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard, mother-of-pearl dot inlays, and satin finish as the higher-priced Sierra. The primary difference is in the drum assembly which is a 3/16″ thick steel rim but rings like a tone-ring. The 24-piece flange and steel rim give you a very bright, sparkling, crisp tone. We use high quality sealed guitar-style tuners because they provide a 6:1 gear ratio for accuracy in tuning. The fifth peg is geared as well.

The 24-piece flange design allows you to convert this banjo to open-back by removing the flange pieces and resonator.

You’ll progress much faster and enjoy playing more with a Boston compared to a lower priced import that’s hard to play. The Boston banjo makes playing easier because the banjo works with you, not against you.
