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-rubbed satin finish, 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 Madison open-back model has 24 shoes for precision tuning and a classic open-back sound.
