Description

Details

The Pilgrim VPB075 Rocky Mountain Model 3 Closed Back 5 String Banjo is a heavenly model that combines exceptional build quality, exquisite tonewoods and brilliant appointments to craft a magnificent, professional quality instrument. Whether you're taking to the studio, or hitting the stage, the VPB075 is the ideal closed-back 5-string banjo to have in your arsenal.

Body

As we've come to expect from Pilgrim, nothing has been spared in the construction of the VPB075m and the build quality on offer here is truly outstanding. The resonator is crafted from flamed maple, a solid tonewood that balances warm mids and crisp articulation brilliantly - whilst providing a sumptuous feast for the eyes at the same time. The robust character of the flamed maple guarantees a high level of resilience, making the Rocky Mountain Model 3 a fine model for touring professionals, for whom reliability and consistency is a must. As this beauty ages, the resonator is only going to sound better and better as it develops an enriched character.

Fitted to the resonator via 24 secure brackets is a top quality brass tone ring, which adds weight to the banjo and creates a fuller yet crisper response. The shell is built using solid 3-ply maple, adding to the already rich tonality of the VPB075. Completing the body is a Remo Weatherking coated head, which projects the enviable timbre produced in the body with the utmost articulation.

Neck

Fitted to the body is a supple maple neck, which ensures a smooth and responsive playing feel throughout. Paired with the neck is a divine rosewood fingerboard, which offers up 22 willing frets that are decorated with ornate position inlays to guide your way in style. The neck and fingerboard partnership provides a supportive and reassuring playing experience that allows you to play through the longest of sessions in total comfort.

Hardware

The Pilgrim VPB075 is equipped with geared tuning machines that allow you to adjust the tuning smoothly and easily, whilst remaining firmly secured during performances. The fifth string tuning machine lies along the neck, but remains discreetly positioned to stay clear when you are playing. The nut at the top of the headstock aids in maintaining consistent string tension, whilst the adjustable clam-style tailpiece dutifully maintains intonation and sustain with precision.

Performing with the Pilgrim VPB075 Rocky Mountain Model 3 Closed Back 5 String Banjo is the stuff that dreams are made of. Maximum comfortability is assured, mesmerising detail is proudly displayed for all to see, and the timbre is breath-taking - what more could you ask for?
