Our biggest selling student banjos are the open back Rover RB-30HPP and its resonator big brother which we will be writing about shortly. Open back banjos, in general, are used to play old-time music while the resonator banjos are preferred by Bluegrass players. There are no hard and fast rules, however, and you may certainly make the music that pleases you with either moderl. Now, we have the audacity to put our initials after the model number for one good reason. In setting up these banjos, we take them apart to nuts and bolts and assemble them to our specs. We also add fifth string capoing railroad spikes so you can play in the keys of A, B, Bb and C as soon as you get home. The end result is a banjo that sounds amazing for the price. We’ve had cuxtomers stop by and check these banjos out at the beginning of a tour to check out student banjos and after they’ve heard the Rover banjos we’ve set up, they always come back. Nothing we’ve found comes close to matching the sound at the price. Here’s why:
- Standard 11″ Aluminum Rim
- Slim, Comfortable Mahogany Neck
- Rosewood Fretboard with Mother of Pearl Inlays
- White Binding on Resonator and Neck
- Grooved Brass Tension Hoop
- 14:1 Guitar Tuners Make Fine Tuning Easy
- Nickel Plated Hardware
- 1930s Style Armrest
- Waverly Tailpiece
- 5th String Spikes Installed
- Set Up Right Here @ HPP
Our Price = $ 315.00
In the Rover Student Banjos set up by Homestead, MSRP has no validity for making comparisons.
We usually have many of the RB-30HPP in stock, but give us a call at (612)861-3308 and we’ll cheerfully reserve one for you.
