Overview

The Recording King Dirty 30's Tenor Banjo brings 100 years of history into the present, road-ready vibe of the Dirty 30's line. The tenor banjo first came to prominence in the early 1900s, and its C-G-D-A tuning is especially well-suited for folk, Celtic and Dixieland music. The tenor is a unique banjo for players looking to add a traditional vibe to their sound, and the perfect crossover instrument for mandolin, violin, viola and cello players.

The Dirty 30's Tenor Banjo has the same road-ready styling as the rest of the Dirty 30's guitars and banjos. The narrow 19-fret neck is a pleasure to hold, and the 23" scale delivers the perfect combination of feel and crisp clarity. The open-back rim features 16 brackets holding down a REMO Fiberskyn head for the classic period-correct tenor sound.

  • Maple neck with adjustable truss rod

  • Single coordinator rod
  • Presto-style tailpiece

        Comments about Recording King Dirty 30's Tenor Banjo:

        I've owned and played a 5 string banjo for some time, and wanted to see the differences in sound with a tenor. Not only is this banjo easy to play, the setup out of the box is ridiculously easy (there are placement marks for the bridge), but it sounds phenomenal!

          Comments about Recording King Dirty 30's Tenor Banjo:

          I own a Recording King RK-R20 and love it! Well made instrument with solid hardware. The Dirty 30's Tenor was a disappointment. I was hoping for a descent, inexpensive tenor to play. When it arrived, the tuner screws were coming out of the headstock. Went to screw them in and the holes were all stripped out. I did the old toothpick trick in the holes to fix it but an instrument should not come out-of-the-box that way. Tuners are cheap and flimsy. Some of the lug screws were different from the others. I should have saved up and bought the RK-T36 model.
