Comments about Recording King RKH-05 Dirty 30's Resonator Banjo:

This is a nice beginner banjo and I'm a beginner banjo player (though not a beginner musician) so I thought I'd submit a review from that perspective for other beginners. First, I have to admit that I didn't buy mine through GC. They were on backorder and I didn't have any patience left. Second, the packaging was sound and secure. When it was opened I was delighted to find a very pretty, satin finished, all maple banjo in great condition. It is very easy to tune and stays in tune for days. Pretty good for new strings still breaking in. The fit and finish was much better than other brands I had looked at in the same price range locally. It is easy to fret and sounds great. It has a nice tone. At this time the only addition I want to make is to add an arm rest, just to help me with the angle of my wrist and picking fingers. This may not be a concern to others.
