Recording King RK-OT25-BR Madison Open Back Banjo with Scooped Fretboard

Written by

James Hurman

Here's what Recording King says about the Madison Open Back Banjo with Scooped Fretboard

The Recording King Madison banjos offer players an ideal combination of quality, versatility and value.

With a hand-rubbed satin finish, a maple neck with adjustable truss rod, and a true steam-bent maple rim, the Madison RK-OT25 is a vintage-style picking machine. 

We've built this banjo specifically for old-time players, with features like our scooped fretboard, Presto tailpiece and  Remo FiberSkyn head, as well as precise tension control thanks to the  24-bracket tension hoop.

The Madison OT25 is perfect for clawhammer and old-time players, with a scooped fretboard for strumming and a steam-bent maple rim for woody, traditional open-back tone.
