Superb appointments and sound at a manageable price!

Deering's most popular professional grade banjo for almost 20 years. Greg Deering knows what it feels like to want a professional banjo and not be able to afford it, so this has become the flagship of their line. The Sierra is affordable with all the most important features that affect the tone and playability. Simple detailing allows Deering to keep the cost down, while still giving you all the important components of a high quality banjo.

The heirloom-quality, professional Deering Sierra 5-String Banjo features a sand-cast, virgin bell bronze, genuine Deering tone ring mounted to a 3-ply rock-maple rim with a one-piece resonator flange. Uses the same tone ring, rim, and flanges as the Gabriella model, which lists at $24,950! The mahogany neck, resonator with ebony fingerboard, planet-style tuning pegs, and satin finish enhance the classic appearance and playability of this powerful and affordable banjo. Deering includes a $180-value case with your Sierra Banjo.

G,D,G,B,D in standard tuning.

DEERING SIERRA BANJO

By 

from Alta Loma, CA

Comments about Deering Sierra 5-String Banjo:

This Banjo sounds absolutely fantastic. It's so nice and natural to play. The feel and quality are way beyond it price. The only difference of this and more expensive banjos is decoration.

Comments about Deering Sierra 5-String Banjo:

This banjo sounds really good. It is easy to fret. The harmonics are on the money at proper bridge placement.
