      Ok so before i got this little beauty I also was slightly frighten by some of the reviews about it. I got this starter banjo took it right out of the box and all I had to do was put the bridge on. This is not a difficult task if you have any experience putting a bridge on other instruments and know how to position it properly. I will say that the bridge could have been slightly better because I did have some string buzz but that was not a hard fix. For being a beginner banjo player this works great, it sounds great, and it really looks great. With a new bridge head and strings it will sound even better. The gig bag is great that comes with it, it's a little big, but works good and the dvd and book are good to get you learning some great tunes. I definitely recommend this for beginners who also might not have a big dollar amount to spend.

      Rogue's Banjo Starter Pack:
      be wary and ready for major dissapoinment should you take the risk.it's not too bad on the wallet for all you get with the package, but it has completely fallen apart before i could even spend any real time on it.
      the extras the banjo comes with are great to help get started.
      the quality has been just a trainwreck and a nightmare. after just a few short playing sessions i came back to find the 5th string tuning peg came out. after several attempts at getting it glued and rooted back in place and the string NOT staying in tune at all, i find that also the tailpiece is bent out of shape and needs replaced. extremely frustrating!
      while the price is well under all other options (though still quite an investment for a poor musician in bad economic times) if i want to even begin really learning i'll have to pay to have the parts replaced and properly set up, not to mention the time, effort, and money i've put into getting the tunung peg back into place.

        My husband gave a prized banjo to a friend that had had a stroke to help with his rehabilitation and coordination, so this was a gift to my husband to replace that banjo.

            I'm a guitar player just starting on the banjo. My wife gave me this set for Christmas. Thus far it's been pretty good; the setup seems good for the quality of the instrument and the DVD and the chord book have been helpful. My one complaint is that there wasn't any information included on how or where to set the bridge, so I had to figure that out for myself via the Internet. If don't know the first thing about the banjo you'll need some additional information to get you going.

              This is just not a quality instrument. The 5th tuner was seized up and wouldn't turn. Returning it. Bought an Ibanez B50 instead. More expensive but in a whole different league in terms of quality.

              Bought two, variable quality, still a good deal

              Comments about Rogue Learn the Banjo Starter Pack:

              Bought two. First one was easy to set up (with a lot of help via the internet) No prob at all with neck, tailpiece, bridge, even the head tension etc. Tuned well, stayed in, declared a good instrument by a pro.
              Second one a different story. Gave up, took it to the music store techie who had to tweak about everything. Ended up with the tailpiece "still not right," and the bridge at an angle, THEN it sounded great, stayed in tune, etc. So, luck of the draw. So, yes I would recommend,but with a caution: Don't get one built on a Monday, or, plan on taking it to a trained tech to get it dialed in from the start.
              BTW, I just went to the website to buy a third. What a shock to see this package has doubled in price. What's up with that?
