Entry level banjos must be designed for easy learning.  The Cripple Creek CC-50 is just that!  The CC-50 model is where the Gold Tone full-size banjo line begins.  This model is among our top sellers as they are specifically designed to play perfectly, sound great, and be affordable.  The openback design featured in this model is ideal for the “old time” banjo style of playing.  Other features include a hard maple neck and maple rim, guitar-style tuners, a geared 5th string tuner, single coordinator rod, Straightline tailpiece, rosewood fingerboard, and a rolled brass tone ring.  With a complete setup at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida, the CC-50 is the perfect model for the entry level banjo player.
The CC-50 includes a light-duty gig bag for easy transport.

“One of the most frustrating things that a banjo teacher has to deal with is a student that comes to their first lesson with a banjo that will not tune or play correctly. The CC 50 eliminates that problem.”

“This is the most sturdy banjo on the market for this price. Because it does not have a resonator it is thinner making it easier to travel with. I personally had one of these in the back of my car for 3 years. It wasn’t even in a case. I piled stuff on top of it threw stuff on it and it is so tough it survived and played perfectly. The most significant feature for me is the heavy coordinator rod that holds the neck securely to the body. This not only keeps the banjo in adjustment, but holds the neck securely to the body to maximize the sound.The tailpiece and armrest are also typical of parts found on banjos costing over $1000.”
