Overview

The Recording King RK-R25 Madison Tube and Plate 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 Madison banjo's construction is a great foundation for a serious banjo.

Add professional appointments like dual coordinator rods, planetary tuners, nickel-plated hardware and a Remo head, and the Recording King Madison probably beats any other banjo 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 is also available as an open-back banjo with 24 shoes for precision tuning and classic open-back sound.

    Great banjo. Been studying the leading manufacturers for months. I saw the deal GC had on this one and couldn't pass it up. Great quality, with sold Maple, and good tone.

    This banjo is easily worth much more than the sale price.

          I had an RK R80 and had to sell it a few years ago!
          I bought this RK R25 I couldn't believe the price!
          I was very pleased with it when I received it.
          Everything was in working order with no flaws!
          This is the perfect banjo for a beginner or a seasoned player alike!
          It's a lot better than the Washburn B16 I played at the store.
          Less expensive too!
