Product# H87213

      A beautiful 5-string with classic styling and elegant refinements.

      The Recording King Madison RK-R36 is for every banjo player looking for a high-quality, great-sounding instrument that won't break the bank. The RK-R36 is built with a Mastertone-style bell brass cast tone ring and one-piece flange just like the best-selling RK-R35, but with a select mahogany resonator and neck.

      The 24-hook brass tension hoop allows the head to be adjusted to the perfect tension, and the nickel-plated hardware matches vintage Mastertone-style specs at a fraction of the price. Case sold separately.

      • Mahogany resonator
      • Mastertone-style bell brass cast tone ring
      • Mastertone-style one-piece banjo flange
      • Mahogany (R36) neck with adjustable truss rod

          Comments about Recording King RK-R36 Madison Select Mahogany Resonator Banjo:

          I've had this banjo for about a year now. It sounds better and better everyday. I was playing for a friend of mine who knows nothing about banjos. When I kicked it up, his jaw hit the floor. After I was done with the song, he just said "Oh, my. Do all banjos sound like that?"

          My nearest neighbor's house is about 100 yards away. He says he can hear me playing on the porch, clear as a bell.

          This HAS to be the best bargain in banjos anywhere!!
