Origins of Pilgrim

Paul Tebbutt the designer of Pigrim banjos strived to replicate that distinctive and sought after sound that many players look for in banjos. It wasn't until 2015 that Tebbutt came up with the innovative design of the morning star tone ring, which is attached via the 24 brackets and adds weight to the banjo, creating a depth of tone with a crisp response.

Maple Shell

Pilgrim ensure all of their products have the highest standard of quality, including every small detail, and strive to maintain the classic looks of Banjos. The long Neck Open Back Banjo is beautifully crafted from flamed maple with a faced ebony cap. The use of maple provides a delicious combination a warm mids, crisp articulation and perfect clarity. Maple also provides a sturdy housing which offers a high level of resilience that is ideal for extreme usage.

Flamed Maple Neck with Ebony Fingerboard

As well as a stunning body and sound, the Long Neck Open Back Banjo also features a beautiful extended maple neck that is topped with an ebony fingerboard. Maple provides a sturdy platform, and ensures the neck will not warp overtime, which adds to the longevity of this elegant instrument. The ebony fingerboard is finished with ornate star inlays, that make this quality instrument stand out from other banjos on the market.
