Upgraded entry-level banjo with professional looks and features.
This upgraded RB-20 is an ideal first banjo. Every detail has been carefully thoughtout to bring you an attractive, great-sounding banjo with a host of professional features at a price anyone can easily afford. The reimagined peghead design is reminiscent of the Classic Art Deco pegheads of the 1930s while the super-strong, lightweight composite rim utilizes the most modern technology to give each banjo a warm, yet articulate tone that really cuts through the mix in any live situation.
The beginning player will appreciate the smooth, easy action of the tuning machines as well as the accuracy of the geared fifth-string peg. The fast-playing mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard has also been upgraded to include a slightly wider nut width than other banjos in the category; giving both beginner and advanced player all the room they need to hit all the right licks. Add to that an adjustable truss rod to keep the neck in perfect alignment at all times, and the Rover RB-20 is truly a professionally featured banjo with standard specifications that is not just serviceable, but will also last a lifetime.
