RK-T36-BR Recording King Madison Tenor Resonator Banjo with Tone Ring, Mahogany
The Recording King Madison RK-T36 is a unique tenor banjo for players looking to add a traditional vibe to their sound, and the perfect crossover instrument for mandolin, violin, viola and cello players.
The tenor banjo first came to prominence in the early 1900's, and its C-G-D-A tuning is especially well suited for folk, Celtic and Dixieland music.
We've built ours with a Mastertone-style bell brass cast tone ring and one-piece flange and 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 narrow 19-fret neck makes playing easy, and the 23" scale delivers the perfect combination of feel and clarity. The 3-ply steam-bent maple rim holds down a classic REMO coated head for period-correct tenor sound.
