Recording King Madison, This company has come along very strongly in the banjo field, most likely because of their developer, Greg Rich, who started Gibson's banjo line.
The Recording King Madison banjos offer players an unparalleled combination of quality, versatility and value. With a hand-finished satin Maple resonator, a maple neck with adjustable truss rod and a true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim, the Madison starts with a great foundation for a serious banjo.
Add professional appointments like dual coordinator rods, planetary tuners, nickel-plated hardware and a Remo head, and you have a banjo that beats anything on the market at the same price point. The tube-and-plate flange gives the Madison a classic sound, and offers players the option to remove the resonator for open-back styles.
