The Deering Sierra 5-String Mahogany Banjo is the flagship of the line thanks to its incredible craftsmanship, tonal response and fantastic looks. The -06- bell bronze tone ring, violin grade maple 3 ply rim, one piece zinc flange, notched tension hoop, and exquisitely beautiful inlays make this banjo a remarkable instrument. This Sierra 5-string features a Mahogany neck and resonator which yields a very pleasant sound with less sustain than maple or walnut.
‘The Sierra has been tremendously successful. But it is no longer cosmetically simple. With the implementation of new technology I have been able to make the Sierra exquisitely beautiful without raising the price. I have been greatly inspired by the art work of the old masters of the Boston Banjo era from the turn of the last century.
‘With this inspiration in my blood I have brought art to the Sierra that is usually reserved for banjos costing much, much more. And I have kept the cost down using state of the art technology. So now the Sierra is a truly professional master piece of both sound and art at a price that is in your reach. We sell more Sierras than any other model and that makes it our flagship banjo!’ Sincerely, Greg Deering.
