The Recording King Madison RK R-15 is an underestimated little power pot of a banjo. I love this banjo for beginners and I personally recommend it over others in the same price range. I recommended it to the young student below in the picture and you can see his joy. It has a lot of the same parts as the more expensive Recording King models, the same resonator, neck wood, tailpiece, armrest, hoop as its more expensive big brothers the RK R 30 and 35. Its light and easy to learn on and has a tough and more expensive Amercian Made look to it. There is no appearance of cheap efforts to make it look expensive, Its like a roughed down stock car that still has lots of punch and you'll be proud playing it. These banjos are designed by an American Banjo player that worked for Gibson and had his own banjo building company for many years. It's not the same animal as banjo imports straight from the factory with only the respected American names like Fender, Gretch, and Wasburn stamped on them.
Here is Recording King's RK R-15 description in more detail.
Built with the same care and attention we give our professional level banjos, but priced within reach of any player, the Madison Rambler (RK-R15) delivers traditional banjo sound and playing comfort well above its pay grade. Whether you're a beginning picker or a seasoned vet, you'll put some serious mileage on you
...Ross, You managed to bring a huge smile to this kid's face! Finn loves his banjo and Sloane does too! I tricked him into thinking it was gonna be here late, arriving tomorrow and sent him upstairs to clean his room! Surprise! The banjo's simply awesome and we couldn't be happier! Now he just needs to learn how to play it! Thanks Ross for all your help! You're the best! Sean Gallagher, Austin,TX
