Recording King

All the vibe a banjo player wants.

The Dirty Thirties Series sits at the perfect crossroads of classic sound and historic design, just like the original Montgomery Ward mail order instruments from the first half of last century. The Dirty Thirties Deluxe Open Back Banjo brings together the old time sound of an open back banjo with the added projection and treble clarity of a traditional rolled brass tone ring.

The rim's 18 brackets allow fine tuning of head tension for a multitude of playing styles and sounds, and name brand components like the REMO head and D'Addario strings complement the high quality banjo construction for which Recording King is famous.
