RK’s Songster shows its roots with time-honored components that give a nod to bluegrass history right down to the original RK hex-stamped flange design. The mahogany resonator and neck combine with the rolled tone ring and classy gloss finish for true banjo tone and vintage bluegrass authenticity players won’t often find at this price.

The Songster resonator banjo is the perfect high-quality entry-level banjo for a beginner, or any player looking to step up. Packed with historic banjo vibe, and built in the same workshops as the RK top-line Madison and Elite banjos, the RK-R20 punches well above its price class in sound and style.
