Messrs Barnes & Mullins first created the “Perfect” series of banjos. It was the foundation of early B&M instruments. The original B&M ‘Perfect’ banjos continue to be sold for substantial sums by musicians and collectors well into the 21st century. The modern-day Perfect’ banjos borrow from the influence of the original instruments. This pays homage to Barnes & Mullins’ vision and designs.
This banjo is lightweight and has the distinctive “Hartford” sound. Woody, bright and unmistakable. People often ask why the banjo has an unusual inlay pattern. This was the traditional pattern. It used to be common to have the inlays placed in the middle of the fingerboard and at the ends. John requested that we do this on some old banjos, such as the Farland and those made before 1900. John, a riverboat captain licensed in the state of New York, wanted us to incorporate a riverboat theme into our banjo.
Rover RB- 20T is our choice because it is the most Irish banjo. This is what is needed to bring Irish music to life. Let’s look at why. Rover banjo has many great features, including the 11-inch composite rim with slim profile and an adjustable mahogany neck. Rover banjo includes an east Indian Rosewood fingerboard with M.O.P markers and white binding.
