The Recording King Madison RK-R36-BR is for every banjo player looking for a high-quality, great-sounding instrument that won’t break the bank. The RK-R36-BR is built with a Mastertone-style bell brass cast tone ring and one-piece flange just like its counterpart the RK-R35-BR, 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.
We inspect each an every instrument we ship out for maximum playability. We adjust the action and adjust intonation when needed. If you would like a specific adjustment, just add it to your order notes and we would be happy to adjust to your liking.
