Description

The Dirty 30s Series sits at the perfect crossroads of classic sound and historic design, just like the original Montgomery Ward mail-order instruments from the first half of last century. The Dirty 30s Deluxe Open-Back Banjo brings together the old-time sound of an open-back banjo with the added projection and treble clarity of a traditional rolled brass tone ring.

The rim's 18 brackets allow fine-tuning of head tension for a multitude of playing styles and sounds, and name-brand components like the Remo head and D'Addario strings complement the high-quality banjo construction for which Recording King is famous.
