Brand new Recording King RK-35

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Today, 13th of December 2012 I got my Recording King -35 banjo.

From the net store in Germany,  "Thomann Musik" I saw their good price
and I  bought  from them an RK-35 banjo. I am totally satisfied by their fast service.

Greg Rich knows his craft and this shows in every part of this RK-35 banjo. The design is unsophisticated and yet beautiful with it´s  gull inlays that reminds of an RB-2 Gibson, I believe.

The pot is first class 3-ply maple, one piece flange and a flathead tone- ring. 

I put on a Huber bridge and tighten the head. I don´t need to do anything of mechanical in future with this banjo. The feel and the sound is to my liking big time!

Kudos to Recording King and Greg Rich!

Occupation: houseworker, etc.

Gender: Male
Age: 73

My Instruments:
Earl Scruggs Standard 1990 with a Blaylock no hole unplated J.D. Crowe ring,
Gold Tone with a Blaylock ring.
The latest is the 1926 TB-1 Gibson that is my next project. I will convert it to an RB-1 and copy the design of the tenor neck and a Blaylock tonering. I keep the original diamond flange system. By next spring 2010 I hope to hear the first notes from this old/new banjo. The TB-1 Gibson is finished and sound to my liking. My newest banjo is a Recording King RK-35 and is the best banjo for the money, I think!

Favorite Bands/Musicians:
Flatt & Scruggs, J.D. Crowe, Sonny Osborne, Don Reno, Bill Emerson, Eddie Adkock, Dennis Caplinger, Jim "Duck" Adkins and most everyone who plays better than me. That´s a lot of folks!
