The Recording King Madison banjos offer players an unparalleled combination of quality, versatility and value. With a hand-finished satin Maple resonator, a maple neck with adjustable truss rod and a true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim, the Madison RK-R25 starts with a great foundation for a serious banjo.
Add professional appointments like dual coordinator rods, planetary tuners, nickel-plated hardware and a Remo head, and you have a banjo that beats anything on the market at the same price. The tube-and-plate flange gives the Madison a classic sound, and offers players the option to remove the resonator for open-back styles. The Madison is also available as an open-back model (RK-O25) with 24 shoes for precision tuning and a vintage old-time sound.
