“WHEN WE FIRST STARTED MAKING THE BOSTON, JANET AND I WOULD GO TO A LOCAL BLUEGRASS CLUB, AND WHEN WE WOULD GET OUT OF THE CAR WE COULD ALWAYS HEAR ONE BANJO ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE PARKING LOT. WE NOTICED THAT ALMOST EVERY TIME IT WAS A BOSTON. THAT STEEL RIM HAS A REALLY GOOD CLARITY OF TONE. IT CARRIES REALLY WELL AND WILL PROJECT BEYOND BANJOS THAT COST MUCH MORE.  
 
WE CALL IT THE BOSTON BECAUSE OF THE BANJO HERITAGE OF THE CITY OF BOSTON. OVER A HUNDRED YEARS AGO THE WHOLE MECCA OF BANJO MANUFACTURING WAS CENTERED AROUND THE CITY OF BOSTON.”
Greg Deering
