RKOH-06 Recording King Dirty 30s Open Back Banjo w/ Rolled Brass Tone Ring

Product Description

The Dirty 30s Series sits at the perfect crossroads of classic sound and historic design.

Like the original Montgomery Ward mail order instruments from the first half of the century, Dirty 30s banjos are the ideal companion for singer-songwriters, folk stylists or traveling troubadours.

The Recording King Dirty 30s Open Back Banjo packs excellent playability and historic vibe into a retro-infused package.

With a great looking satin finish, maple neck and Remo Recording King banjo head, the Dirty 30s open back banjos have classic banjo tone and are light enough to take on the road with ease.

The rolled brass tone ring on the RKOH-06 is a thinner band of brass than a heavy Mastertone-style tone ring. It still has brightness and projection, but delivers a more mellow and open sound, matching perfectly with the traditional open back banjo design.

For players wanting to get into traditional old-time or clawhammer styles, the Dirty 30s Open-Back banjo offers the ideal combination of great tone and portability in a retro-infused package. The rolled brass tone ring delivers a mellow, open sound that matches perfectly with traditional open-back design.
