Deering Solana Demonstration from Summer NAMM 2014
The Deering Solana banjitars have a cool, old-timey sound due to the use of nylon strings. The maple fingerboard and rim, flat fingerboard radius, 2" wide neck, bridge plate, and built-in pickup give the instrument a unique feel and tone. This video goes into the specs of the instrument moreso than a sound demonstration. At the end it does give you an idea what the plugged-in pickup sounds like.
Banjo Bill shares a brief account of his musical origins and how he got started playing on banjitar. He has an interesting idea for tuning...
This is a useful lesson from Brad Davis. I love the sound of his Deering banjitar! Maybe someday Deering will want to sponsor me or want me...
12-string guitar is doubled by 6-string banjo on this track. This sounds huge and a 12-string banjo adds sparkle to the big middle section.
