The Deering Black Diamond banjo is an innovative and unique banjo. The combination of black head, black resonator binding with maple purfling/accent gives this banjo a completely unique appearance and sweet, sustaining sound. The elegant, hand engraved diamond inlays on the fingerboard and peghead create a subtly elegant appearence highlighted by the naturally colorful ebony. The slender Deering neck profile finished in high gloss is fast and comfortable to play. The three ply maple rim, made of a special variety of maple, is the perfect compliment to Deering’s ’06 tone ring and one piece resonator flange. Warmth, sustain and power give the Black Diamond banjo a special place in the artist’s repetoire and in the history of the banjo.
