 Example of comments I receive from my customers often.

....."The Banjo just arrived and everything seems to be just as good as you described. So far I am very happy with it. I can already tell the difference from my other banjo. It is even more fun to play. Thanks for your help and patience thru the process. I appreciate your communication. I will let you know how it goes from here. Bert"

    Best Price on Rover Beginner Banjos at BanjoTeacher.com!
    I recommend as excellent beginner banjo for learning bluegrass,  folk or clawhammer banjo styles.
    Rover Banjos are made by Saga, the same company that makes Gold Star Banjos. Kentucky Mandolins, Regal Dobros and Blue Ridge Guitars to name a few. Saga has been in business making banjos and other instruments since the 1970's, They are the top's in import quality and should not be confused with the import Rogue Banjos which in my opinion are not close to them in quality.

    At Banjoteacher.com all Rover banjos are set-up, carefully checked, tuned and set-up before shipping
