Recording King RK-R36 Madison Resonator Banjo

Monthly payments available Learn more


I am just super impressed with these Recording King banjos. If this RK-R36 could cook, I'd have to have a serious talk with her Pa.  Honestly, these are our best seller, they compete with banjo's of much higher prices in the sound department!
