Deering Maple Sierra

Deering Maple Sierra Deering's Sierra has long been about the best buy in a professional grade, American-made banjo.

Until recently, it was only available in mahogany, but can now be had in either maple (shown here) or mahogany.

With its hardshell case, it lists at $2699 but please call us for selling price. Temporarily Out of Stock

Our Pick This is a ZEPP Country Music Pick: I feel that among American-made banjos, the Sierra offers the best professional-grade sound and playability for the buck; the savings comes from the absence of mud flaps and racoon tails. There's nothing fancy about this instrument--it just gets the job done, and done right!

Deering Maple Sierra  peghead The peghead is Deering's distinctive shape, and now featueres a handsome inlay in its ebony overlay.          Deering Maple Sierra tuners The tuners are Deering-branded, Gotoh-made planetaries.
Deering Maple Sierra head The banjo has a frosted head and Deering's proprietary tailpiece and bridge. The tone ring is Deering's '06 bell bronze flathead, the same one used in the most expensive of the "Deering Line" of Deering's banjos. The 3-ply maple rim is also used throughout Deering's tone ring banjos.
