Jaroslav Prucha (pronounced Prooka), the owner of PRUCHA BLUEGRASS INSTRUMENTS, is the first internationally-known banjo manufacturer who equips his instruments with parts made exclusively in the Czech Republic. The fact, that he makes both parts and the complete instruments, makes him absolutely unique in the history of the banjo.
The Pioneer is great sounding, great playing and great looking without being overstated. Pound for Pound the Pioneer is one of the best value banjos available anywhere.
The Prucha Pioneer 5 string banjo is one of the most popular models they make. The Nitro-cellulose matt finish, rosewood fingerboard with cut diamond inlays and the extra resonator bindings are features that make a more elegant instrument. The Diamond inlays on the “fiddle” peg head really set off the wonderful banjo. The mahogany neck and resonator create a full true bluegrass sweetness of tone sounding far nicer in our opinion than many American manufactured banjos. Combined with the help of top of the range Gibson banjo quality tone producing parts this is an extremely highly specified banjo without many of the fancier cosmetics you could buy at a much higher prices. Includes r.r. spikes installed for 5th string capo'ing for A, Bb, B & C. Don't just take our word for how good these banjos are. This is what Geoffrey Stelling of Stelling Banjos said.....
Jarda Prucha and I have been friends for many years. He is now
producing banjo parts for many banjo makers, including me. He
makes a good banjo. He will be good for your business. Best of luck.
