Some Reviews on RK R 36

...Ross, The banjo arrived earlier today in mint condition. The sound quality is like night and day different my the one I have. Thanks for all your efforts. I'm going to enjoy the new one for a very long time. Also, thanks for all your great service. Tom Joplin

...Hi Ross, My RK 36 arrived today and it is perfect - everything I had hoped it would be. I will enjoy it for many years to come. Thanks also for your CD “Evolution.” I especially like your rendition of “Early Morning Rain,” one of my favorite songs. I look forward to Fundamentals CD/DVD package, too. Best, Case 

Billy Hammond called and left this voicemail about how much he liked his new Rk-36 and he played it on the phone too!

Recording King R-36 Company Description 
The Recording King Madison RK-R36 is for every banjo player looking for a high-quality, great-sounding instrument that won't break the bank. The RK-R36 is built with a Mastertone-style bell brass cast tone ring and one-piece flange just like our best-selling RK-R35, but with a select mahogany resonator and neck. The 24-hook brass tension hoop allows the head to be adjusted to the perfect tension, and the nickel-plated hardware matches vintage Mastertone-style specs at a fraction of the price.

Buying a Recording King Banjo at BanjoTeacher.com
Banjoteacher.com has been serving banjo players online since 2002.
We play banjo, know how to set up a banjo properly, have the ability to add custom options and we back up each sale with personalized, professional, knowledgeable service. We add an extra level of quality control that can't be matched by large chains that frankly don't have a clue about banjos. If you buy a Recording King straight off the net, what are you going to do if there is a high fret, a poorly cut nut or any number of little issues that become big issues, when shipping across the country. Let us get it right for you, the first time! We care about banjo customers and it shows.

Very Happy
Just wanted to let you know the banjo arrived on Friday without issue. It is absolutely beautiful, and has an amazing sustained ring to the sound! I've already shown it off to some of my friends and cannot wait until I have something substantial to play for them! I'm working my way through your DVD and the book and am currently practicing the alternating thumb roll and the forward roll. You're right it's very easy to count it as triplets instead of eighths! I really appreciate having all of the materials along with the banjo. I'm glad you recommended the upgraded case as well, it is stunning and very cushioned. Thanks again for taking the time to talk to me on the phone and providing guidance on my purchase. I am thrilled with the instrument and am looking forward to years of enjoyment with it! Thanks, Mike S.

the RK 36 is equal to or better than any banjos I have played.
Ross the RK 36 got to Jacksonville with no issues. I have owned many bluegrass banjos over the last 4 plus decades including Gibson both new and vintage, top tension, Stelling, etc. Frankly the RK 36 is equal to or better than any banjos I have played. Construction, finish, set up, neck profile, etc., are excellent. I did put a Purcell bridge on the RK. The tuners seem to berthing out after using them and tweaking the tension screw. Unless the tuners cause an issue I see no need to upgrade them. So. Great banjo at any price. Thanks for having it set up and getting it to me promptly. Regards,

I AM loving the banjo
Hi Ross, Thanks so much. I have the Gold Membership up and running now. And I AM loving the banjo...it sounds really beautiful! The notes ring like lovely clear bells. I don’t know if that’s a good description or not but I love it. And it’s gorgeous to look at too. I’m looking forward to many years of learning and playing! Happy Easter, Tori

New RK R 36
Ross, received my banjo on Thursday but was traveling to Florida for the weekend. It was a long three days until I returned home, and what a homecoming it was!! Banjo was in perfect condition, tuned her up and played for a few hours. I cannot begin to explain what a difference a quality instrument makes, the sound and action are amazing. While my skills are lagging behind this banjo I hope to soon be able to do her justice! Thank you Ross for all you advice, I couldn't be happier with the purchase. You and your staff are amazing and true professionals!!

loud, clear and no feedback
The banjo arrived and it is fantastic. I played it at band practice right next to the drums and the Kavanjo pickup worked beautifully. It was loud, clear and there was no feedback at all. Stu
