Recording King Updates Madison Line with Two New Banjo
Californian banjo expert Recording King has filled out it's
popular Madison line with two new instruments. The Madison line has
always been popular among players looking for a high quality,
wonderful sounding instrument and an affordable price.
The RK-R36 is built with a Mastertone-style bell brass cast tone ring and one-piece flange just like their 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.
The RK-OT25 on the other hand is an old-time picking machine, with a steam-bent maple rim, 24-bracket tension hoop, and dual coordinator rods for adjustability. Recording King say they've built this banjo specifically for old-time players, with features like their scooped fretboard, presto tailpiece and old-style Remo FiberSkyn head.
