Gold Tone CC-BG 5-String Resonator Banjo Package w/ Gig Big, Learning DVD & More
Availability: In Stock
The Gold Tone Cripple Creek Bluegrass Banjo package is the perfect introduction to the world of 5-string bluegrass music making. But don't think this is a “toy” or a banjo you'll quickly outgrow. The CC-BG banjo is built using quality parts and with an attention to detail. Plus, this banjo was just professionally setup in the Gold Tone shop with low string action, so learning will be easier. Too many “starter” instruments remind me of riding a bicycle uphill. It can be done, but it's a lot harder, and not nearly as much fun.
This banjo is similar to Gold Tone's popular CC-50 model, but with an added resonator. A resonator banjo has a wooden “bowl” mounted to the back of the banjo, so it projects the sound toward an audience. Resonator banjos are the nearly universal choice for bluegrass music, as the sound of the resonator instrument is louder and “twangier” than open-back banjos. The CC-BG has numerous quality features, including a hard maple neck and rim, mahogany resonator, a geared 5th string tuner, 5th string “spike”, engraved armrest, Straightline cast (not stamped) tailpiece, rosewood fretboard, and a brass tone ring.
Remember, this is a package, so all of the extras are included. In addition to your banjo, you'll receive a Gold Tone gig bag, strap, instructional DVD, picks, and even a clip-on tuner!
