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.
Made in the U.S.A., this solid brass mute fits 4, 5, and 6 string banjos. Adjustable for all bridge widths, this mute does not hinder right hand position. Easy on and off.
You just slide the mute on the bridge lengthwise because one end is open. The sound is much quieter, but still a very pleasant sound, this will help keep peace in the home when the baby is sleeping.
Made of a 100% cotton, these hats are fully adjustable with Velcro fastening on the back. They have a rolled brim and are embroidered.
Sueded Black Hat is embroidered with metallic gold.
Distressed Grey is embroidered with white.
Dark Green has a sporty low profile, brushed twill, and white embroidery.

The banjo shares many of the same sonic qualities as a harpsichord, so although it's so closely associated with more homespun genres, the instrument actually lends itself very well to classical music! The pieces in Bach for Banjo are in tablature only with chord symbols, arranged at the beginning to intermediate level for five-string banjo players. As in classical guitar arrangements, the melody and harmony are combined. Most pieces are on facing pages with no page turns required, and beginners can pick through the selections at a slow pace. The book features just the best-known parts of 20 beloved Bach pieces: Air on the G String , Arioso, Minuet in G, Sheep May Safely Graze, Sleepers Awake, and more.
