Beginner Banjo - RK R 20

Hello! I'm Ross Nickerson. I have been playing and teaching banjo for most of my life. Here at my website, we hand pick the best banjo brands and models for learning banjo on there are. I have personally played all of these banjos and seen students in action with them. We stand behind them all and I feel as though our Banjo packages are the best in the business.

No one else can offer the quality, comprehensive instruction we include with each beginner banjo purchase. My Fundamentals of Five String Banjo is a 54 page book with a two hour DVD and two audio CDs. It covers so many important things in your learning experience not included by any competition's "throw in" Books and DVDs.

All of our Banjos are checked thoroughly with strict quality control standards before shipping and arrive professionally set-up. insured warrantied and ready to play.

    Rover Banjos are made by Saga, the same company that makes Goldstar Banjos. 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 in quality.

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