Welcome to the wonderful online world of Deering Banjos where we invite you to check out our full range of American made banjo’s including the Deering, Vega, Tenbrooks, and Goodtime banjos, all of which are hand built by Janet and I and our team of 48 dedicated banjo specialists right here in our Spring Valley, California facility, just 10 miles East of downtown San Diego.
We focus only on making banjos in our factory so that all of our staff’s 271 years of combined banjo building expertise is directed toward making the highest quality banjos in all price ranges and providing the best banjos in the world.
We would love to have you come visit us and take a factory tour. It is a great honor for us to share the joy we and our staff have in making banjos. Over the past 41 years we have made more than 100,000 banjos and every one of them has been crafted with special attention.
We are a family run business, and we regard our craftsmen, suppliers, dealers, and especially our customers as part of the Deering family. Our focus and passion is to create great banjos that enable you as an artist to enjoy expressing yourself and your music.
We look forward to building your special banjo.
