The Recording King Madison RK-R36 is for every banjo player looking for a high-quality, great-sounding instrument that won't break the bank. The RK-R36 is built with a Mastertone-style bell brass cast tone ring and one-piece flange just like the best-selling RK-R35, 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. Case sold separately.

Comments about Recording King RK-R36 Madison Select Mahogany Resonator Banjo:
I had my reservations about purchasing a Recording King banjo, but the cyber monday deal came along and I couldn't resist getting over $200 off this banjo, so I took a chance. I'm really please with the instrument. It's well balanced, great quality, and I would b comfortable taking it to jams or performing with it. The only con, really, is that it's not a Gibson. And in that case, my budget just isn't at the price point to buy a vintage Gibson banjo, so this is a wonderful substitute. Like many instruments made in China of high quality, the materials and craftmanship is impressive, but it can use a professional luthier setup. No surprise there. Well-built, but after a setup this instrument really sings.
