The Eagle II banjo represents the latest in tone ring innovation from the collaborative efforts  of Greg Deering and Jens Kruger. It features  the ground breaking patented Twenty Ten Tone Ring; a Deering original crafted unlike any other traditional tone ring. Made of brass and producing a tone with a very rich mid-range and good bass and treble response, the most unique feature of the Eagle II banjo is that it is suitable to both clawhammer/frailing and bluegrass, among other styles. Rarely has there ever been a tone ring model that could claim this but customers who own the Eagle II have proclaimed its utmost versatility in this respect. Whether you are a professional or a dedicated banjo enthusiast, the Eagle II will help you soar to new heights!

Played by Winston Marshall of Mumford & Sons.
