Vintage looks and feel at a modern, budget-friendly price.
The Recording King Dirty 30's Tenor Banjo brings 100 years of history into the present, road-ready vibe of the Dirty 30's line. The tenor banjo first came to prominence in the early 1900s, and its C-G-D-A tuning is especially well-suited for folk, Celtic and Dixieland music. The tenor is a unique banjo for players looking to add a traditional vibe to their sound, and the perfect crossover instrument for mandolin, violin, viola and cello players.
The Dirty 30's Tenor Banjo has the same road-ready styling as the rest of the Dirty 30's guitars and banjos. The narrow 19-fret neck is a pleasure to hold, and the 23" scale delivers the perfect combination of feel and crisp clarity. The open-back rim features 16 brackets holding down a REMO Fiberskyn head for the classic period-correct tenor sound.
- Maple neck with adjustable truss rod
- Multi-ply maple rim
- Rosewood fretboard

Comments about Recording King Dirty 30's Tenor Banjo:
I own a Recording King RK-R20 and love it! Well made instrument with solid hardware. The Dirty 30's Tenor was a disappointment. I was hoping for a descent, inexpensive tenor to play. When it arrived, the tuner screws were coming out of the headstock. Went to screw them in and the holes were all stripped out. I did the old toothpick trick in the holes to fix it but an instrument should not come out-of-the-box that way. Tuners are cheap and flimsy. Some of the lug screws were different from the others. I should have saved up and bought the RK-T36 model.
