Dean Backwoods 2 Electric Banjo

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 Design

The 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 Features

The 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.

Features:

- 5-string electric banjo
- Single DMT Design humbucker pickup
- Volume control knob
- 25.5-inch scale neck
- Mahogany C-shape neck
- Mahogany resonator
- 24-piece bracket
- Rosewood fingerboard

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Dean backwoods 2 banjo"
Overall: I bought this banjo for my son. My son and I both play banjo. My son doesn't use finger picks, so sometimes it's hard to hear him play. I bought this banjo for the electric so it would be easier to hear him play. I was very impressed with this banjo. The electric projects loud clear banjo sound. The bonus was the acoustic projected loud and clear. The banjo has a great sound. I think anyone would be hard pressed to find a better beginner banjo for the value. I was so impressed with this banjo that I'm going to buy myself one from zzounds of course.

Overall: First banjo for me and not sure where I am headed with it but overall seems well built!I would prefer a lighter wood tone but that's me being picky... Had to have first replaced as it was jumbled around in shipping. Pickup was twisted and left dent in Banjo Head ;
