The Sierra has been tremendously successful. But it is no longer cosmetically simple. With the implementation of new technology Deering 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 Deering have brought art to the Sierra that is usually reserved for banjos costing much, much more. So now the Sierra is a truly professional master piece of both sound and art at a price that is in your reach.

 

 

Our most popular professional grade banjo for almost 30 years. We are proud to manufacture the Sierra as affordably as possible and still retain all of the high end features that affect the tone and playability. Simple detailing allows us to keep the cost down, while still giving you all the important components of a high quality banjo.
