Overview

The sounds of the South rediscovered in this Recording King Madison banjo.

The Recording King Madison RK-R35 is built around a 3-ply steam bent maple rim, from the exact same construction and materials used in their best-selling RK-R80. It has a maple neck with an adjustable two-way truss rod and a comfortable padauk fretboard. With a 24-hook brass tension hoop, players can adjust the head tension as precisely as on any world-class banjo. The planetary tuners, geared 5th peg and dual coordinator rods are effective professional components, and add an authentic feel to these impressive banjos.

The Madison RK-R35 has a maple resonator with a hand-rubbed brown matte finish. Recording King builds it with a Mastertone-style bell brass cast tone ring and a Mastertone-style one-piece flange. The Madison peghead and fretboard feature Recording King's Seagull inlay, for a banjo that looks as classic as it sounds.

The American threaded nickel-plated hook and nut hardware, as well as the true presto-style tailpiece and armrest are the same as featured on the popular RK-Scout. Like the other Madison banjos, the RK-R35 comes standard with an authentic Remo head.
