The Madison RK-R35 gives banjo players a high-quality, great-sounding banjo with a classic Mastertone-style bell brass cast tone ring and one-piece flange.

The Recording King Madison RK-R35 is built around our 3-ply steam bent maple rim, from the exact same construction and materials used in the best-selling RK-R80. The maple neck has an adjustable two-way truss rod and a comfortable padauk fretboard. With a 24-hook brass tension hoop, players can enjoy precise adjustment of the head tension.The planetary tuners, geared 5th peg and dual coordinator rods are pro components that add an authentic feel to these impressive banjos.

The Madison RK-R35 has a maple resonator with hand-rubbed brown matte finish. The peghead and fretboard feature our Seagull inlay, for a banjo that looks as classic as it sounds. It features American threaded nickel-plated hook and nut hardware, and presto-style tailpiece and armrest, and comes standard with an authentic Remo head.
