Deering Sierra 5-String Banjo Maple

John711, 09.09.2013
Hi
Having been a guitar player for over 40 years, I felt the urge to try something new.
I've always liked the sound of a banjo and decided to look around to find a suitable
instrument that would hopefully encourage me to learn. Having had the Deering
'Sierra' for just over a month, I am totally satisfied, I definitely made the right choice.
This is a great instrument and I would genuinely encourage other musicians to look
at the 'Sierra' 5-string.

Review Deering Sierra 5-String Banjo

The net is full of lavish praise for this banjo, and when you've seen Jens Kruger's video explaining and demonstrating all the great features of the Sierra, it's arousing desires and expectations. So my expectations were very high and? were not disappointed!

I play and teach Banjo for 20 years and have always been satisfied with quite good, Far Eastern replicas, but I was never really happy with it, it lacked this Banjomäßige banjo sound, which is known from the recordings of the great.
Now I have it. And more. The Sierra offers the official bluegrass twang, but also soft, warm, round sounds, which inspire also to arrange romantic ballads for banjo.
Speech, sound separation, sustain? I have not heard it so far. You just do not want to put that part out of your hands anymore.
According to Deering, all the essential sound-influencing elements are used in the Sierra, which are also used in the instruments, which are twice and three times as expensive. All parts of the boiler (high-quality maple, clay ring from bell bronze, etc.) can also be found in the price categories in which one also locates a small car. The build quality of the instrument gives no reason to complain. Saved so obviously only on the optics. It does not mean that the Sierra is an ugly duckling. On the contrary. I find it in its elegant simplicity much more attractive than any mother-of-pearl ornamentation excesses. The filigree inlays Victorian style on the ebony fingerboard are just tasteful and beautiful. Only from the back the banjo looks rather simple. The maple is brown and quite unevenly stained, which looks a bit painted for my eyes. The wood grain is completely submerged, even if it is still recognizable. Of course, a high-gloss finish will bring much more plastic effects.
But purely tactile, the matte finish is optimal. Smooth, tender and soft it feels and contributes to the creamy playability of the instrument.

What's more: the Sierra comes in a very high-quality suitcase, lush padded in forest-green velvet and there it fits into it like a glove. This gives a secure feeling, but for the price of worn out arms and hands, if you have to carry the thing to the subway. (Keyword: bell ring tone ring). In the suitcase brings the sweetheart over 10 kg on the scales!

Conclusion: more banjo for the money is hardly possible (the Thoman price is unbeatable) and I have found my dream instrument once.
