A high-class, decorative banjo that produces amazing tone.
Recording King's RK-R30-BGM is a tube-and-plate flathead banjo that pairs the industry-favorite Recording King 20-hole flathead tone ring with the sound and ease of a two-piece flange. Their RK tone ring delivers authentic banjo sound, while the tube-and-plate flange helps to create a more complex sound than the familiar one-piece version.
The RK-R30 features our new diamond and square mother-of-pearl inlay pattern, Recording King hexagonal flange, maple neck and resonator, rosewood fretboard and presto tailpiece. Built using a combination of RK's traditional metal parts, this banjo is one of our most tonally complex banjos yet; it also allows for easy conversion to open-back.
