Trelawny Open Back Banjos

Our open back banjos draw from the influences of the 'Old Time' tradition. Most commonly used for Claw Hammer and Frailing styles, they also offer a lighter option for the Bluegrass player. All our open back banjos are made from grade one selected sycamore with an ebony fingerboard and headstock overlay with hand cut bone position markers and inlay designs. The traditional three ply steam bent rims are also made from selected sycamore and are either an all wood construction or various tone ring options including our own Whitechapel Tone Ring. Twin coordinator rods and a dual action truss rod are used for maximum stability and neck alignment. Geared tuners and a 24 hook tension ring are used as standard.
We are happy to discuss or offer advice on any aspect of your banjo should you wish to customise.
