The Recording King Madison banjos offer players an unparalleled combination of quality, versatility and value. With a hand-rubbed satin finish, a maple neck with adjustable truss rod and a true steam-bent maple rim, the Madison starts with a great foundation for a serious banjo.

The RK-OT25 is an old-time picking machine, with a steam-bent maple rim, 24-bracket tension hoop, and the clean look of all of our Madison banjos. We've built this banjo specifically for old-time players, with features like our scooped fretboard, Presto tailpiece and old-style Remo FiberSkyn head.
