Banjo With Resonator


Deering: SIERRA MAHOG

(Item ID: SIERRA MAHOG    Serial#: Z005)

Deering Banjos SIERRA MAHOG Flagship Series 5-String Banjo with Mahogany Resonator

From Greg Deering:

"When I first introduced the Sierra I kept the cost down by keeping the cosmetics simple. I wanted to build a top professional banjo at a price that I could have afforded when I was a kid going to the music store on my way home from school everyday. I put the money into the pot assembly.

The pot assembly of the Sierra, the violin grade maple 3 ply rim, the -06- tone ring, the one piece zinc flange, the notched tension hoop, the Deering tail piece and armrest are, with just a few exceptions, exactly the same as our whole line all the way up to the Gabriella. The only exceptions are: the Golden Era has a different zinc flange; the Hartford has a Grenadillo wood tone ring; the Terry Baucom has an -06- tone ring that is just a few ounces lighter than the standard -06- tone ring: and the Tenbrooks banjos have the Swiss Jens Kruger tone ring.

With the implementation of new technology we 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."
