Deering Banjo: Golden Era at YAMS

Deering GOlden Era Banjo at Young America Music in Macon, GA

The Golden Era banjo is a unique model of the Deering line. It's designed to reproduce the most sought-after five-string banjos of the pre-war era. The Golden Era has a thicker neck shape which creates more sustain and a deeper resonator which provides that warm gutsy tone.

This banjo offers an ebony fingerboard. The flame Eastern hard rock maple of the neck and resonator are stained with a cremona sunburst stain. Mother-of-pearl inlays are the traditional "Hearts and Flowers" pattern.

The Maple rim is turned to traditional dimensions and mounted with a zinc flange, twenty-hole virgin bell bronze tone-ring and presto style tailpiece with careful attention to original dimensions to recreate the sound and performance traditionalists desire.

You can hear the sound of the Golden Era banjo on many albums by fine musicians such as John Hickman and Byron Berline's "Double Trouble" album, Josh Williams' "Old Town of Home" album, and on Herb Pedersen's Desert Rose Band album, "Life Goes On".

Musical Stylin' with a Musical Shawl...uh.....Poncho

Yes, it's another in a long series of YAMS puns - but for a mere $5 you can come by Young America Music and pick up one of these musical shawls..... but some are calling them Musical ponchos. Regardless, they are domestically woven - i.e. they are Made in the USA - and are Jaquard woven from the finest pre-dyed yarns.

You can tell that Marie and Sydney look really good, and are enjoying theirs!

100% cotton - machine washable on gentle cycle. "One Size fits most" - the label says it's 47 x 47 (which we presume is inches).

Musical Stylin' for only $5.
