If you're looking for maximum versatility from your banjo, the Dean Backwoods 2 Electric Banjo is a great 5-string banjo for the job. It's a true electric banjo, coming to you with a single DMT Design Humbucker set into the neck position of the instrument. If you're considering a banjo that will serve equally well in acoustic or electric settings, the The Dean Backwoods 2 is a very worthwhile option for the price.
Distinctive Pickup DesignThe single DMT Design Humbucker in the Backwoods 2 was specially designed by Dean to deliver a totally authentic banjo voice when playing it through speaker cabs and combo amplifiers. It also begs to be plugged into your FX board or DSPs, giving you a whole tonal realm to explore.
Classic Design and FeaturesThe banjo head itself is a transparent 11-inch Remo. Unlike some "starter" banjos, the Backwoods 2 comes with a 24-piece bracket. This ensures far greater tension stability and consistent voicing in the head than the 18-piece brackets one sometimes finds. It sports a mahogany neck and a rosewood fingerboard. The 25.5-inch scale is comfortable and will be familiar to seasoned banjo players. The fingerboard is inlaid with pearl dots on 7 frets. Its Grover tuners will keep you in tune.
