Deering Sierra Tenor Banjo


Instrument Categories:

So why is the Deering Sierra Tenor Banjo the most popular tenor banjo in the Deering line? Greg Deering says it best … “No one can buy a better banjo! They could buy a fancier one but not a better one.

The satin finished mahogany neck is made the same as every one of our necks – fast, comfortable, and precise. A masterpiece of playability!

The pot or drum assembly is the best quality money can buy. It has our 3-ply maple rim, our top quality sand-cast virgin bell bronze tone-ring, and our own one piece cast zinc flange. In fact, it is the exact same pot we use on most of our more expensive banjos all the way up to the Gabriella!
