Deering Sierra Maple Openback Banjo


Instrument Categories:

Deering has done it again with this innovative variation on their Sierra Bluegrass, the Deering Sierra Maple Openback  banjo!!

By simply eliminating the heavy flange and resonator the Sierra open-back offers a voice very much in the spirit of the famed Vega #2 Tubaphone at a far lower price.

The Deering Sierra uses the famed ’06 or Aught Six Deering flathead ring – a ring that has roughly the same mass as a Tubaphone which when combined with the maple neck offers the superb tone and sustain one would expect in the Vega #2.

All this in an elegant and very playable, professional grade banjo.

A Deering Vega archtop hardshell case is included.

More From the Builder On The Deering Sierra Maple Open Back Banjo:

“Our most popular and affordable professional grade banjo now available as an openback. Greg Deering knows what it feels like to want a professional banjo and not be able to afford it, so this has become the flagship of our line. “
