Great Festival Banjo

By Cooly

from Acton, Indiana

Comments about Morgan Monroe Rocky Top RT-B01 Banjo:

I go to quite a few festivals and stay at the campgrounds to jam on some bluegrass. I don't like taking my valuable banjos cause they might get beat up. I bought this Rocky Top and its perfect, the composite back doesn't scratch easily either. It has kinda an old banjo twang to it..pretty cool!

Comments about Morgan Monroe Rocky Top RT-B01 Banjo:

I'm an experienced musician but a novice banjo player. The banjo arrived with a twisted and broken string, which I noted in a previous review. However, Guitar Center not only replaced the string but completely re-checked the stringing and tailpiece hooks as several strings broke during the process. They were more than accommodating and in the end I am completely happy with the instrument. My only current issue is that there seems to be no hardshell case to fit this banjo and the folks at Morgan Monroe don't know of one either.

      Comments about Morgan Monroe Rocky Top RT-B01 Banjo:

      I'm an experienced musician but new to the banjo. The instrument arrived with a broken string that was clearly incorrectly attached around the hook at the base of the tailpiece, thus the breakage. I'll take it into the nearest Guitar Center (an inconvenient 40 miles away) tomorrow and hope they make good on the problem as well as take care of any setup needed.

      A great banjo

      By JB Dean

      from Ennis Montana

      Comments about Morgan Monroe Rocky Top RT-B01 Banjo:

      After playing one owned by a local "legend" here in town I remarked how well it played and how good it sounded. When he told me "That's a composite rim and resonator" you could have knocked me over with a feather! This is the local dude who everyone calls the banjo guru and owns some highly sought after stuff. He's basically the town expert (and amazing player) and he said he picked this up as something to play, travel and let his grandkids play with. What he wasn't expecting (or me) was just what a great playing instrument it is. Is it a 1930 TB-3 Flathead Mastertone? No but its a well built, no nonsense banjo that you don't have to baby. Needless to say I had to have one and it showed up almost ready to go. After a basic setup and some new strings I haven't been able to put it down. It's JUST TOO MUCH FUN! Beyond the fantastic value its just a great instrument to add to my stable of toys!

          Comments about Morgan Monroe Rocky Top RT-B01 Banjo:

          This banjo tuned and played right out of the box. Is it as good as a Gibson master tone banjo from 1957? No, but it is good enough to learn to play on. Its modeled like the old resophonic banjos from Kay. Pretty cool.
