Open back banjo combining classic and modern features.

The RK Madison OT26 banjo is the perfect companion for old-time musicians, delivering traditional tone with a percussive lilt. With a hand-rubbed satin finish, a maple neck with adjustable truss rod and a true steam-bent maple rim, the Madison is a vintage-style picking machine. The traditional scalloped Whyte Laydie tone ring is prized for its warm but punchy tone, allowing each fundamental note to speak clearly without distracting overtones. Additional features include a maple neck, no-knot tailpiece and precise tension control from the 24-bracket tension hoop for the classic old-time sound. Along with these traditional features, some changes were made where modern performance counts: the dual coordinator rods and truss rod, Remo FiberSkyn head and Mastertone-style armrest all combine for an exceptional playing experience. Finish it off with a scooped fretboard for strumming and a steam-bent maple rim for woody, traditional open-back tone, and you have a pro-level banjo you can take anywhere.
