The Pilgrim Progress VPB35T Closed-Back 4-String Tenor Banjo is as versatile as it is beautiful. A fantastic instrument, this banjo includes a range of unique features that make it a joy to perform with. Delightful tonewoods, superb hardware, and a solid construction, the Pilgrim VPB35T is sure to become a firm favourite amongst amateurs and professionals alike.

The tenor banjo is popular across many forms of music, from jazz to folk, thanks to its responsive tonality and ability to adopt a variety of tunings. The tenor banjo is widely played using a plectrum, but as with any instrument, how you perform with it is down to you.


The resonator is built using mahogany, a solid tonewood that gives the Progress VPB35T a robust and powerful timbre. Finished in a gorgeous semi-matt finish, the resonator doesn't just look good, but it is well protected to preserve the mahogany for as long as possible. The aluminium shell is fitted to the resonator to provide a bright and lovely voice. A Remo-coated head has been employed to provide a bright and articulate projection. The build quality of the body, as with the rest of the banjo, is solid and inspires great confidence in your ability to play with absolute freedom.


Fitted to the body is a mahogany neck, which is also finished in a semi-matt finish. Married to the sturdy neck is a luxurious rosewood fretboard, which is home to 19 frets that are adorned with dot position inlays. The neck and fingerboard partnership provides a supportive and reassuring playing experience that will see you through the longest of gigs, and keep you coming back for more.

The Pilgrim VPB35T is equipped with enclosed, geared tuning machines that allow you to change you adopt a variety of tunings with ease, whilst remaining firm and true during performances. The strings remain fixed, allowing you to play with absolute confidence. The nut at the top of the headstock aids in maintaining consistent string tension, whilst the adjustable bridge ensures that the strings' connection to the body is as well supported as possible, improving both intonation and sustain across each string.

If you’re looking for an inspiring tenor banjo that is perfect for practising with at home, as well as being suited to recording and gigging, then the Pilgrim Progress VPB35T Closed-Back 4-String Tenor Banjo is the perfect choice.
