The Pilgrim VPMA15 Redwood Series Flatiron-Style Mandolin in Antique Violin Burst is a great model for beginners who are taking their first steps into the music world, those who are looking to progress and develop their skills, and those who want a great model to practise on and travel with. AS with everything they make, Pilgrim have put every effort towards making the VPMA15 an outstanding model that is highly affordable.
The body is shaped to that of a Flat-Style mandolin, an oval-shaped profile with a hollow construction that creates depth across the mid-range to ensure a full timbre with a heartbeat that is beating with warmth. The flat-back shape makes this mandolin very comfortable to play, and as you might expect, it is very lightweight and easily transportable.
Pilgrim has employed solid tonewoods throughout, which gives the VPMA15 the grounding for a long and healthy life. The mandolin will only improve with age, developing a unique character and timbre the more it is played. The body back, sides and top are all built using solid spruce, a tonewood that is highly regarded due to its ability to resonate efficiently, which allows it to project with ease to create a generous dynamic output.
Pilgrim have treated the spruce top to a visually stunning antique violin burst finish. A semi-matt protective coating preserves the wood for as long as possible, extending the life of the mandolin. The top and back edges are completed in a cream binding, creating a seamless transition across the body.
The body has been paired with a slender yet solid mahogany neck, which creates a comfortable playing surface whilst aiding the mandolin's impressive sustain. Paired with the neck is a bound rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 17-frets that are decorated with dot position inlays to guide your way. The neck and fingerboard partnership promotes comfortability, and once you get underway, you will not want to stop. The cream binding that traces from the body and along the fingerboard ensures smooth transitions between each fret, and carries on its journey up and around the headstock.
The Pilgrim VPMA15 benefits from the appointment of a fixed ebony bridge, which the strings pass over on their way to the tailpiece. The bridge and tailpiece work together harmoniously to guarantee a seamless connections between the strings and body.
Performing with the Pilgrim VPMA15 Redwood Series Flatiron-Style Mandolin in Antique Violin Burst is a true joy, and one that everyone can take pleasure in. Grab yours today and get playing this awesome mandolin.
