Recording King RKH-05 “Dirty Thirties” Resonator Banjo
The RKH-05 is Recording King’s newest and most affordable resonator banjo. For the money, the RKH-05 is one of the cleanest, best-playing banjos on the market.
The RKH-05 is a simple banjo without a lot of cosmetic flourishes, but it plays well and sounds good. It’s definitely worth a look if you want an entry-level banjo that won’t need to be replaced a few months down the road.
If you’re looking for something a little more advanced, check out our other Recording King banjos.

The Dirty Thirties Series sits at the perfect crossroads of classic sound and historic design. Like the original Montgomery Ward mail order instruments from the first half of the century, Dirty Thirties guitars and banjos are the ideal companion for singer-songwriters, folk stylists or traveling troubadours.
The Recording King Dirty Thirties Resonator Banjo packs excellent playability and historic vibe into a retro-infused package that makes vintage style and traditional banjo sound accessible to every player. With a great looking satin finish, maple neck and Remo Recording King banjo head, the Dirty Thirties resonator banjos have classic banjo tone and are light enough to take on the road with ease.
