For three finger players, the RK-R36 is a tone ring banjo with a mahogany neck and resonator, and a one-piece flange. Like the Mastertone-style banjos on which it is based, it features a rosewood fingerboard, three-ply maple rim, nickel plated hardware and dual coordinator rod.
The RK-OT25 is its old time cousin, an open-back model with a scooped fretboard and no-knot tailpiece.
The only pricing information available from Recording King at this time is that these two new models start at $499.99. Further details can likely be obtained from one of Recording King’s many dealers worldwide.
