Rk Elite 75
Christopher9042, 19.07.2014
Great price for a very good solid banjo. I had looked at several other 5 string banjos in this price range and the Elite from Thomannn was by far the best deal. Great sounding banjo and very well put together. Highly recommend this banjo as an upgrade for an enthusiast.

Astonishingly good banjo
Dr Halfbiscuit, 23.04.2017
I've wanted to upgrade from a Deering Goodtime Classic for some time (good solid banjo but not very exciting). Research on banjo websites suggested Recording King as best bang for bucks.

This is an understatement. This banjo produces genuine bluegrass sound comparable with professional banjos four or five times the price.

Playable straight from the box, a few tweaks (head tension, new strings) had it playing just as I wanted. The sound production is clean, note separation clear, and sustain beautiful. Playability is great and very forgiving, even allowing a klutz like me to sound good. The manufacture, fitting and finish is without fault.

Thomann dealt with my order efficiently and quickly. The price was the best I could find (I couldn't find the RK75 in the UK at all). Tracking information kept me informed of where my banjo was at all time on its journey to me. I will recommend them to all my friends looking for instruments and accessories, without any hesitation, and will most likely use them again myself.

Overall, a very easy and pleasant experience ending with me having a banjo as close to my dreams as I can afford.
