Hawthorn Hoppers Tradition

The Hoppers Tradition is our traditional Gibson style mahogany banjo made in Kansas City. We built this banjo to honor our good friend and former Bluegrass Boy Lonnie Hoppers. Equipped with the Tennessee 20 tone ring and a Jimmy Cox rim. Waverly tuners with Hoppers cam tuners built in provide precise tuning and allow for the playing of those Earl Scruggs tuner classics.
The Hoppers cam tuners are dead precise and smooth as butter. The late George Hoppers, designed and built the first set of Hoppers tuners in the mid-1950s and Lonnies brother Dan Hoppers carries on the tradition today building these fine tuners.
We are proud to have the Hoppers name and endorsement of this Missouri-made banjo. This is a fine, traditional style banjo built using the finest wood and components. We have priced these banjos to be affordable for the average picker.
