Designed for guitarists wanting a true, authentic banjo sound in a familiar feel.

The Recording King Madison banjos offer players an unparalleled combination of quality, versatility and value. With a hand-finished satin maple resonator, a maple neck with adjustable truss rod, and a true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim, the Madison RK-R25 starts with a great foundation for a serious banjo. It also comes with professional appointments like dual coordinator rods, planetary tuners, nickel-plated hardware and a Remo head, making it a great banjo for the price. The tube-and-plate flange gives the Madison a classic sound, and offers players the option to remove the resonator for open-back styles.

Comments about Recording King 6-String Banjo:

Expect some setup work. Need to change the strings and set the bridge. Will also need to adjust/tighten the head. It comes with tools which is nice but no instructions. The wood and chrome may need sprucing up, that's a Recording King issue.
