An oustanding value in a professional-level banjo, hard-shell case included! Banjo players have an option of a high-quality, great-sounding banjo with a classic Mastertone-style tone ring and flange.

Includes: Recording King R36 5-string banjo, countoured hardshell case, electronic chromatic clip-on tuner, a set of strings, leather strap, beginner bluegrass DVD, two fingerpicks and a thumbpick.

The Recording King Madison RK-R36 is built around a 3-ply steam bent maple rim, from the exact same construction and materials used in the best-selling RK-R80. It has a mahogany neck with an adjustable two-way truss rod and a comfortable rosewood fretboard. With a 24-hook brass tension hoop, players can adjust the head tension as precisely as on any world-class banjo. The planetary tuners, geared 5th peg and dual coordinator rods are effective professional components, and add an authentic feel to these impressive banjos.

The Madison RK-R36 has a mahogany resonator with a hand-rubbed brown matte finish. It is assembled with a Mastertone-style bell-brass cast tone ring and a Mastertone-style one-piece flange. The Madison peghead and fretboard feature the Seagull inlay, for a banjo that looks as classic as it sounds. The American-threaded nickel-plated hook and nut hardware, as well as the true presto-style tailpiece and armrest are the same as featured on the popular RK-Scout. Like the other Madison banjos, the Madison Deluxe comes standard with an authentic Remo head.

What's a 5th-string railroad spike capo? Click here to see a photo. When you use a standard capo on your banjo fretboard, fretting strings 1 through 4, you'll need to capo the 5th string separately. The 5th string starts at the 5th fret. If your standard capo is on the 2nd fret, you also need to capo the 5th string two frets higher, at the 7th fret. We recommend installing railroad spike capos on frets 7 and 9 (A and B). We install them on the fretboard just under the 5th string, an idea that was developed and used by Earl Scruggs himself. We use them, and so do most of the professional players we know. When you're playing, you don't really notice the spikes because they're out of the way, but they're always there when you need them. Simply slide the 5th string under the spike. When you're done, slide it out.

Note: Our banjos are individually inspected and set up by our Banjo.com staff in Georgia, and delivered ready-to-play. We are banjo players, so we set them up the way we want to play them! Each banjo is in tune when we carefully pack it for shipment. Climate conditions and travel will affect the tuning, so it may need to be fine-tuned before playing.
