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 lighter weight Goodtime Banjos. 

This  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.
  • 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, with minimal size compatibility, and portability. All of this in one very small package.

Not recommended for Deering banjos with tone rings.
