Jens Kruger and the new Deering Sierra

Deering SierraDeering has reintroduced their popular Sierra banjo, with a new inlay pattern in the neck.

The Sierra is Deering’s least expensive tone ring banjo ($2699), making it perhaps the lowest priced professional model banjo made in the US. It is offered as a traditional five string model, as well as an open back, tenor or plectrum. A left handed Sierra is also available.

To demonstrate the newly reconfigured Sierra, here is Deering endorser and banjo marvel Jens Kruger, who walks us through the new features and gives us a tune.
