Recording King, a division of The Music Link, has introduced two new banjo models aimed at new players looking at their first upgrade, or beginners wanting to start out on a better than entry level banjo.
The Madison is offered in both a resonator and open back version, both built with a 3-ply maple rim. The necks are made from maple with rosewood fingerboards. Planetary tuner and a geared 5th string peg, plus dual coordinator rods, are also included on both.
The resonator model (RK-R25) features a tube and plate flange which attaches the maple resonator, and a fan inlay pattern adorns the fingerboard and headstock. The open back version (RK-O25) is inlaid with a simple dot pattern.
These new banjos will be available from Recording King dealers worldwide. The resonator model carries a retail price of $659.99 and the open back $499.99.
