5-String Recording King Banjos
With all that said, it stands to reason that your first step in choosing from Recording King's lineup is to figure out what sort of instrument you're looking for. In the case of a brand-new player just beginning to learn the ropes, maybe that means an affordable classic model like the Recording King Dirty 30s Open Back 5 String Banjo or the Recording King Starlight Series Open Back Banjo. Don't let the modest stickers fool you; these instruments can definitely hold their own on the stage. Want a little more power? No problem - just add a resonator with the Recording King RKH-05 Dirty 30's Resonator Banjo or the Recording King Starlight Series Resonator Banjo. If you're a highly skilled pro banjo player on the other hand, maybe something like the Recording King The Elite Traditional Banjo or the Recording King USA Series M5 Banjo will be more up your alley.
What matters more than anything else is that you get the best banjo to meet your individual needs as a musician and as an owner. No two banjo players are identical, so nobody can tell you for sure which banjo to choose. But, of course, that doesn't mean you can't look to other musicians for advice. So if you're stumped, remember to check some of the reviews attached to the models you're considering. They can give you the insight you need to help break a tie and zero in on the perfect choice for you from the lineup of Recording King 5-string banjos.
