The new Vega banjos are the culmination of years of evolution and development, producing powerful, folk and early style banjos that are as much at home in today?s music as they were in years past. The sounds of these banjos are ideal for old time music, fingerstyle, clawhammer, folk, classical, ragtime, and for classic turn of the century parlor music.
Vega banjos are also a perfect choice for any player who wants a powerful, versatile banjo that is not too heavy. (Try these with a few bluegrass licks and you?ll see what we mean by versatile.) Surpassing early Vega banjos in quality, parts, and craftsmanship, the new Vega banjos by Deering blend the best of today?s technology with yesterday?s classic tones.
Versatile, bright, responsive banjo with a very modest price made in America. This banjo features a violin grade maple neck and a 3-ply violin grade maple rim. Together they create a beautiful tone.
When you step up to a Little Wonder you get a banjo featuring a durable ebony fingerboard which gives you the look and feel of a professional instrument. Both the comfortable neck and quality rim are stained a deep warm brown. The pot has a coordinator rod that easily and accurately adjusts the banjos “action? or string height for easy playability. The peghead of the maple neck is overlaid with black and is inlaid with a white Vega logo and beautifully engraved star.
The Little Wonder is fully adjustable through the truss rod in the neck, the coordinator rod, and the Deering True Tone tailpiece. Planetary tuning machines come standard on the Little Wonder. It is bright, responsive and full of life and easy to take with you anywhere because of the light weight.
