Deering / Calico 5-String Banjo / Stringed Instrument For Sale

A premium quality world class 5-string banjo that is appreciated for its crisp tone with great highs and distinctive bass response. The Calico is not only beautiful, but it is also exceptionally dynamic with both powerful sound and response providing an excellent tool for all styles of music. At this price point Deering added two features, they taper the inside of the resonator walls for added projection of tone, and also add the feature of glued-in frets. Each fret is fitted to the fingerboard and glued in place so that in the future when the frets are worn out, they can easily be replaced without chipping the fingerboard. A truly great banjo.  The heart of the Deering Calico banjo is the Deering bronze tone-ring, precisely fitted to the three ply maple rim. The Deering -06- tone ring produces a beautiful, balanced overtone spectrum. Its weight is ideal for most styles played on the banjo. A softer touch will provide you with as much sustain as you ever want, a sharper attack will produce a distinct pop and accurate note separation. You will notice no dead spots over the entire fingerboard. The beautiful highs and powerful well rounded bass is the result of intense study of alloys and shapes resulting in superb sound. With a brighter tone than mahogany, maple provides a beautiful bass response and great highs. The banjo plays string to string and up the neck at a consistent clarity and excellent volume so it is easily heard amongst a band.Includes Deering deluxe case.  BANJO SPECS NECK: Curly Maple With A Honey Stain Natural Ebony Fingerboard Mother Of Pearl Scroll Inlays Ivoroid Bound Fingerboard and Peghead Multi-color Neck Purfling Trim Slender Deering Neck Shape 22 Nickel-Silver Frets Fully Adjustable Two Way Truss Rod Deering Planetary Banjo Tuners Deering Geared 5th String Tuner High Gloss Finish POT: Deering -06- 20 Hole Bell Bronze Tone Ring 11" (280mm) Deering Premium Violin Grade 3-ply Maple Rim Deering Brass Notched Tension Hoop 11″ Frosted Top Medium Crown Head 5/8″(15.9mm) Deering Smile Maple/Ebony Bridge 24 Round Hooks and ¼″ Hex Nuts One Piece Cast Zinc Flange Slender Shaped Armrest Nickel Plated Hardware Deering True Tone Tailpiece RESONATOR: Curly Maple Coral Snake Wood Purfling Trim Ivoroide Binding Shallow Depth For Quick Response Resonator Sides Are Specially Tapered On the Inside for Projection of Tone High Gloss Finish Comes with Deering light gauge 5 string strings tuned to in standard G tuning (G,D,G,B,D) Gauges: 10 11 13 21w 10 End Type: Loop

ABOUT US

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail info@thefellowshipofacoustics.com My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
