Founded in 1972, Elderly Instruments was the first shop to sign on as a Deering dealer in 1978. Based in Lansing, Michigan, the family-owned music retailer specializes in fretted instruments of all kinds, including a vast selection of Deering banjos. Elderly’s inventory ranges from affordable beginner instruments to stage-ready workhorses to pristine collector pieces. You’ll find high quality new instruments from big name brands, boutique builders, and everything in between.
Elderly is a go-to resource for all things banjo, including parts, accessories, books, and cases. Their top-notch staff, including several banjo players and technicians, ships instruments to banjo players all over the world, and Elderly’s world class repair shop inspects and sets up nearly every instrument that comes through their doors. This combination of selection, expertise, and service all adds up to a customer experience like no other.
