About This Listing

For clawhammer banjoists who prefer a scooped neck to ease playing their banjos over the fingerboard Deering makes the Vega Old Time Wonder. Deering builds in a traditional "scoop″ that allows more room for the fingers and thumb of the right hand to pluck the strings over the fingerboard. They also steam and bend the violin grade maple rim and install a fiberskyn head over the rim, attaching a classic "no knot tailpiece″ 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.

It is the mellowest banjo sound, a lovely full tone. The Old Time Wonder is reliable and exceptional in tone, playability, versatility and responsiveness, with a round woody tone perfect for old time string bands.
