The Deering Sierra 5-String banjo is Deering's most popular professional grade banjo for over 20 years. This is the base model for which all of the Deering upperline resonator banjo models is based. It has been so popular for so long for a reason - it is a great banjo that will not explode your wallet.
Featuring all of the qualities you need in a professional grade banjo - the Deering -06- Bell Bronze Tone Ring and Deering 3-ply violin maple rim, the banjo sings out with rich, deep, lows and sparkling, crisp highs for a beautiful blend of tone. The mahogany neck gives the banjo a slightly warmer tone than the maple version of this same model.
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. Deering makes the Sierra affordable and you get all the most important features that affect the tone and playability.
Features spikes in the 5th string at the 7th, 9th, and 10th frets so you can capo and change keys easily. Comes with a Deering hardshell case and a lifetime warranty.
