Add to Cart
The Deering Eagle Series White Lotus 5-String Banjo is a true testament to Deering's commitment to craftsmanship and innovation. Crafted for the discerning banjo player, this instrument strikes the perfect balance between rich, resonant tones and exceptional playability, all while remaining accessible for players seeking a remarkable banjo at an affordable price point. The key to its exceptional sound and lightweight design lies in the American White Oak rim, a wood known for its strength and stiffness. This unique choice gives the White Lotus Banjo an almost metallic resonance, akin to the sound created by a tone ring, without the added weight.
Intricately designed, the White Lotus Banjo is a visual masterpiece as well. The resonator boasts striking white binding, creating a captivating contrast against the golden hues of the White Oak. Drawing inspiration from its name, Deering has adorned the banjo's ebony fretboard with exquisite white lotus flower inlays, further emphasizing the instrument's elegance and attention to detail. Whether you're an aspiring musician or a seasoned banjo player, the Deering Eagle Series White Lotus 5-String Banjo invites you to explore a world of musical possibilities, combining classic banjo traditions with a fresh, modern approach. It's time to experience the magic of the White Lotus Banjo and elevate your musical journey to new heights.
