The Deering Sierra 5-String Banjo is the epitome of professional-grade craftsmanship that doesn't compromise on sound or affordability. Renowned as Deering's flagship professional banjo, the Sierra seamlessly combines classic tonal excellence with cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, resulting in an instrument that stands as a true icon in the banjo world.

Designed with both seasoned musicians and aspiring virtuosos in mind, the Sierra banjo represents a harmonious blend of traditional and modern. Leveraging state-of-the-art instrument-making technology, Deering ensures that the Sierra retains its legendary tone and playability without an exorbitant price tag. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the rim of the banjo pot is fashioned from high-quality 3-ply Violin Grade Maple, ensuring a robust foundation for its distinctive sound. The heart of the Sierra's resonance lies in its Deering -06- 20 hole bronze tone ring, which generates a warm and resonant tone that captures the essence of the banjo's heritage. The one-piece Zinc flange used to attach the resonator not only enhances structural integrity but also adds to the instrument's aesthetic appeal. With the Deering Sierra 5-String Banjo, experience a harmonious symphony of tradition, innovation, and affordability, all within your grasp.
