Like Recording King's popular RK-R35, the RK-R36 offers excellent craftsmanship and a number of professional features at a very reasonable price point.
The R36 is identical to the R35 except for two key features:
- Mahogany neck and resonator (instead of maple)
- Full gloss finish (instead of satin)
This banjo has two tiny dings on the back that we filled in and buffed out. They are visible but smooth to the touch. It is otherwise in mint, like-new condition.
We're bundling this one with a nice Canadian-made TKL 08840/LTD Limited Edition hard case.
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 our 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.
