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

The Recording King RK-R35 Madison Tone Ring Banjo offers players an unparalleled combination of quality, versatility and value. With a hand-finished satin Maple resonator, a maple neck with adjustable truss rod and a true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim, the Recording King Madison is a serious banjo.

Add professional appointments like dual coordinator rods, planetary tuners, nickel-plated hardware and a Remo head, and the RK-R35 Madiosn banjo probably beats anything on the market at the same price.

The banjo's tube-and-plate flange gives the Madison a classic sound, and offers players the option to remove the resonator for open-back playing styles. The Recording King Madison banjo is also available in an open-back model with 24 shoes for precision tuning and classic open-back sound. Case sold separately.

  • Great Banjo!

    As reviewed by Trevor Cavanaugh on 4/15/2013

    This Banjo is the best for the money. It has better features than any other at its price point and some you can only find on very expensive banjos (tone ring, maple rim, planitary tuners ext.) Very Happy with mine! Well worth the money!

  • Banjo for a lifetime (but description is wrong)

    As reviewed by Matthew Amati on 3/8/2014

    This is the lowest-price professional-quality banjo you can get. It is as good or better than instruments in the 3-4000 dollar range. If you want to be a performing banjoist, you need an instrument that a)stays tuned/has good intonation b) has good meaty tone, without requiring finicky setup and c) most important, has the VOLUME to be heard over other instruments on state. The RK knocks it out of the park on all of these. It's crazy cheap, and will do you for a lifetime. Take note: The RK-35 does *not* have a "tube-and-plate" flange - whoever wrote the store copy knows nothing about banjos. It has a one-piece flange, like most bluegrass banjos.
