A great beginning resonator model.

Comments about Recording King Bluegrass Series RK-R20 Songster Banjo:

This Banjo the rk20 Songster is getting praise from all my Bluegrass Buddies.I began playing banjo in Nov. 2008 and was playing my father-in-laws 1905 banjo that was not in to good of shape.I just wanted something to stay in tune and play somewhat consistant. Boy was I supprised with this Recording King. After setting it up to play this thing had punch. i've played it now for 3mo. and not one problem and the fit and finish perfect. If I need another Banjo or someone wants to know what Banjo to buy I would recomend the Recording King RK-R20 Songster in a NewYork min. But why should you listen to me? I've Played guitar since I was 10yrs. old,played pro. in country and rock bands,and run sound for many. I am now 56yrs. old and now repair inst. Hay, Play it loud and long injoy your creativity.
