Warning: detailed banjo-speak is about to follow: The Sierra banjo, while being Deering's least expensive professional banjo, has become the flagship of the line.
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 exactly the same as the entire Deering line, all the way up to the Gabriella, with just a few exceptions; the Golden Era has a different zinc flange, the Hartford hasa Grenadillo wood tone ring, the Terry Baucum 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. Has the exact same pot assembly as the Sierra, The Ivanhoe, except for cosmetic differences such as gold plating, has the exact same pot assembly as the Sierra. The Maple Blossom, the Deluxe, the Calico, the Black Diamond all have the exact same pot assembly as the Sierra.This means that the Sierra is truly a top professional banjo. When Deering first introduced the Sierra they kept the cost down by keeping the cosmetics simple. The Sierra has been tremendously successful, but it is no longer cosmetically simple. With the implementation of new technology, Deering has been able to make the Sierra exquisitely beautiful without raising the price. Inspired by the art work of the old masters of the Boston banjo era from the turn of the last century, Deering has brought an artistic sensibility to the Sierra that is usually reserved for banjos costing much more.
