Good right out of the box.

Comments about Rogue B30 Deluxe 30-Bracket Banjo with Aluminum Rim:

I purchased the "Factory restock" and shipped it to my local store. I had the store technician look at it and he said it didn't need a set up. He tightened the drumhead and intonated it for me. It holds tuning well and sounds great. I'm very happy with it.

    Comments about Rogue B30 Deluxe 30-Bracket Banjo with Aluminum Rim:

    I am an experienced musician and play in a bluegrass band. This is a great banjo for practice and jamming. It's probably good anywhere because I doubt if most people can tell the difference in banjos. I bought this for practice because it is lightweight. My number one banjo is probably 4 times heavier. I did replace the tuners because I was constantly retuning the ones that came on it. The neck is nice and solid. This banjo came with a Remo drum head which is about the best in my opinion. The string height is OK. This is a bottle cap style banjo. If you look at it from the top it looks like a bottle cap. The pot is all aluminum. You usually get what you pay for but for this price we are probably getting a little bit more. I am giving five stars for that reason and not because it is a Gibson Mastertone, which it is not. Bottom line: Tune er up and have some fun!!!

        Comments about Rogue B30 Deluxe 30-Bracket Banjo with Aluminum Rim:

        This is actually my second banjo (my first was second hand and this was an up-grade) and I really wish this was my first.
        The tone is super clear and bright. With the back resonator it is also strong with a full warm sound.
        The pegs (unlike my first one, and a lot of others) this one has ratio pegs which really helps with tuning and keeping it in tune.
        One more note, the strap connectors on this model are pretty awesome. The are not stiff but i am not worried that the will come off at any point.

        I play guitar (Taylor and Gibson Les Paul) but wanted to try my hand at banjo. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and sound of this piece, considering the price. I cannot compare to professional models, but this certainly qualifies as a fantastic starter.

          Comments about Rogue B30 Deluxe 30-Bracket Banjo with Aluminum Rim:

          Let me be up front and honest. I am not a banjo player. Yet. I am a guitar player and I have a collection that includes "beginner" and "intermediate" level instruments. Brands in my collection include Squier, Mitchell, Epiphone(big fan, own several), and Ibanez. I set them up myself and do all my own maintenance. I picked up this banjo because I am curious about the banjo and wanted to learn the techniques of playing it.

          First impressions:
          Beautiful woodwork on this banjo. The grain is simply stunning to look at. Setup was easy following an online set of instructions for bridge placement. Tuned up nicely and has a beautiful tone and perfect intonation when the bridge is in the correct location. Action is nice and no fret buzz.

          Impressions 2 weeks later:
          Holds tuning extremely well. Just put a tuner on it and it had dropped MAYBE a 16th of a step after two weeks. Sound is stunning.

          Lasting impressions:
          It is easy to forget that this is a 200 dollar starter banjo. It looks great, sounds great, and holds tuning with a level of precision I did not expect in a starter instrument. If you are looking to pick up a banjo and start learning, stop looking here. THIS is the one you want. You will not have to spend exorbitant amounts of time tweaking and fiddling with the setup once it is set. You won't have to tune it every day or even every other day. As noted above, it dropped a 16th of a step at most in two weeks. If you are looking for a better banjo, be prepared to spend four figures on it. That is simply how good this banjo is.

              This is my first banjo. I have heard other beginner banjos and they don't sound as good or hold a tune quite as good. I am careful not to bang it around in general, but its doing great after 3 months. Sounds great, looks nice.
              I got this one on a good sale which makes it all the sweeter.

                I wanted to try out a new stringed instrument after playing guitar for years, so I went ahead and got this as my first banjo. Overall I've been happy with it; the look of it is really nice and the sound is very decent. It stays in tune for long periods of time and I haven't had any problems with the tuning pegs. I noticed that it's hard to get the higher frets to produce a clean sound if you're wanting to play more technically, but no complaints otherwise. It's definitely a beginner instrument only, but still a great value for the price.

                              Not new to musical stringed instruments and wanted to try out a banjo. After some research and talking with my musical friends I decided to get the Rogue B30. This is a solid well built banjo. It is not high end but I believe it is a great starter banjo for anyone. The hardware isn't flashy or fancy but sturdy. Fit and finish is top notch for the small price. I set the bridge for a 22 fret, 26.25" scale and snapped on the electronic tuner and wow.....great smooth sound. I'm very pleased with the purchase and am looking forward to learning to play. I got mine on sale but it's worth the full regular price. Get one, you won't be disappointed.

                              So far, a great banjo. I'm a new banjo player, but this instrument seems to be of great quality and sounds great as well.
