    Deering® Banjo Stand


    Deering worked directly with the folks at Cooperstand to make this customized Deering wooden banjo stand. Made of African Sapele Mahogany, the stand is great for both openback and resonator model banjos. This new stand has several advantages:

    ·         Compact…folds down  small enough to fit into many gig bags and instrument cases. This makes traveling with one much more convenient.

    ·         Protects finish on your banjo…because it is made of wood, there are no metal pieces that can scratch or damage your banjo finish.

    ·         Stable construction… the stable, lower profile prevents running into the banjo stand, causing possible damage to the instrument.

    ·         Enhanced aesthetics…the wooden stand is beautifully crafted to enhance the home or studio environment.

    In short, this custom Deering wooden banjo stand combines artistic good looks, versatile full size, functional strength, with minimal size compatibility, and portability. All of this in one very small package.

    Organic Deering Vintage T-Shirt


    Wearing your Deering pride and helping the environment at the same time! What could be better?

    We felt that bringing back the vintage style Eagle logo on an Anvil brand 5.0 oz., preshrunk 100% certified organic cotton shirt was the natural thing to do. This comfortable cotton shirt will breath with you as you walk the festival grounds. The t-shirt carries the features found on many high end manufactures like shoulder-to-shoulder taping, double-needle stitching, and sown with cotton thread.

    Various colors to choose from.

    All T-Shirt orders will ship via USPS and take 2-7 days to process.
