Rover RB-45P Resonator Plectrum Banjo

$750.00 $585.00

The top-selling Rover® banjo line is proud to introduce their finest model yet–the Rover® 45 series! Of great interest to the Traditional Jazz fraternity is our model RB-45P Plectrum 4-string banjo. Tuned similarly to the classic 5-string, but without the short 5th string, the plectrum tuning offers deep, rich bass tones and close harmony chords at your fingertips. The novel aluminum rim with built-in tone-ring is a strong, lightweight assembly that is unaffected by changes in temperature and humidity–it gives you a clean, crisp tone with plenty of volume. The slim, professional neck and correct, vintage-styled resonator are identical to those on the costliest professional models, and the “fiddle-shaped” headstock is right out of the 1920’s–the banjo’s Golden Era. Smooth, accurate geared tuning machines and a deluxe tailpiece and armrest–all in gleaming nickel-plate–complete this remarkable, affordable banjo–the Rover® RB-45P!
