The Deering Sierra 5-String Maple Banjo provides Deering’s flagship model with Maple construction! The Maple neck and resonator yields a brighter and crisper professional quality tone compared to mahogany and is easy to play with clarity and good note separation. The -06- bell bronze tone ring, the violin grade maple 3 ply rim, the one piece zinc flange, the notched tension hoop, and the exquisitely beautiful inlays gives the Deering Sierra professional feel, tone and looks!
‘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!’ - Greg Deering
