Recording King Folk & Traditional Instruments
Every musician deserves to play on equipment that was built by professional craftsmen. Of course, Recording King's team of passionate luthiers are masters of their trade, and their dedication is apparent on every folk and traditional instrument they construct. For proof, take a look at the RA-998 metal resonator mandolin. One of the only mandolin resonators currently available, this stunning model comes in your choice of a nickel-plated bell brass finish with "Lily-of-The-Valley" back engraving, or a champagne matte finish. Not to mention, the power and projection of this unique mandolin is as sharp as it looks, and it will certainly impress any passionate fan of pre-war stringed instruments.
Recording King is also a respected manufacturer of banjos, and the RK-R35 Madison is one of their biggest sellers. Featuring a hand-finished satin maple resonator, a dual coordinator rod neck joint, planetary tuners, and a true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim, this tone ring banjo perfectly reflects the classic sounds of the south. Overall, the RK-R35 is comfortable to play, delivers an amazing tone, and an ideal option for today's serious banjoist.

Today, Recording King continues their historic legacy, and their extensive catalog of folk and traditional instruments contains more than enough choices to bring your musical talents to the forefront.
