Recording King RKH-05 Dirty 30s Resonator Banjo, Maple Resonator & Neck, Satin Finish


Manufacturer's Description

The Dirty 30s Series sits at the perfect crossroads of classic sound and historic design.

Like the original Montgomery Ward mail order instruments from the first half of the century, Dirty 30s banjos are the ideal companion for singer-songwriters, folk stylists or traveling troubadours.

The Recording King Dirty 30s Resonator Banjo packs excellent playability and historic vibe into a retro-infused package.

With a great looking satin finish, maple neck and Remo Recording King banjo head, the Dirty 30s resonator banjos have classic banjo tone and are light enough to take on the road with ease.
