About this banjo

When your banjo skills start to out-strip your beginner’s banjo, it’s time to step up to the new RB-35 by Rover! Rover engineers designed an ingenious aluminum rim with integrated bracket band–making the whole assembly simpler and lighter. The tone is crisp and clear, with volume to enable you to be heard in any musical combination. The many professional features include a geared 5th peg and the classic Waverly-style tailpiece. Metal parts are brightly nickel-plated and the classic resonator is bound with white ABS to match the neck. The RB-35 will give you years of musical satisfaction–along with the knowledge that you are playing the best value in the World of Banjos–you’re playing a Rover!

Bonuses When You Order From Banjo.com

  • 5th String Railroad Spike Capos – FREE
    We can add these as a free service when you purchase a banjo from us. When you add this banjo to your cart just select that you want the capos. What is this? When you use a standard capo on your banjo fretboard, fretting strings 1 through 4, you’ll need to capo the 5th string separately. The 5th string starts at the 5th fret. If your standard capo is on the 2nd fret, you also need to capo the 5th string two frets higher, at the 7th fret. We recommend installing railroad spike capos on frets 7 and 9 (A and B). We install them on the fretboard just under the 5th string, an idea that was developed and used by Earl Scruggs himself. We use them, and so do most of the professional players we know. When you’re playing, you don’t really notice the spikes because they’re out of the way, but they’re always there when you need them. Simply slide the 5th string under the spike. When you’re done, slide it out.
  • Bluegrass or Clawhammer Starter Pack – FREE
    We can send along with your banjo a Bluegrass or Clawhammer Starter Pack for free. This includes a strap, DVD, and tuner and picks.
