Halloween: Did You Know that Banjos Kill Zombies?

Zombie Killer Goodtime BanjoIt's Halloween season and if you really need a killer item, consider a Zombie Banjo! Inspired by the movie “Zombieland” featuring Woody Harrelson whose character at one point uses a banjo to fight off Zombies, Greg Deering created the latest 5-string Goodtime banjo - the Zombie Killer Goodtime banjo. Launched at the 2013 Anaheim NAMM (National Association of Music Merchandisers) Trade Show, the Zombie Killer banjo was a hit with general attendees and dealers alike. With a “blood splatter” resonator finish and a “saw blade-edged” brilliant red flange made with a cut-out zombie-themed pattern to match the fingerboard inlays, the Zombie Killer will capture the attention of the audience without even strumming a note. Now, we just need some great zombie bluegrass music to go after.

They comment saying, "In all walks of life you'll find people content to rest on past accomplishments, fame or glory. Two years ago or twenty, they remind you incessantly of what they did. Ask them what they've done lately, though, and you find yourself facing a blank stare.

Deering BanjosSpring Valley, CA -- September 25th, 2012 - The Deering Banjo Company is the world leader in the banjo market, and their global dealer network is experiencing an increased demand from their customers for quality American-made Deering banjos.
