The best beginner banjo there is.
The CC 100R Plus by Goldtone
CC100R Plus comes with special tobacco brown finish, planetary
tuners, engraved armrest, separate fifth string nut and now they are 24 bracket banjos, upgraded from the 18 bracket design of the other CC 100 models. (the image is the old 18 bracket design). They sound great and look
great too. These are really nice, when you hold it, it just feels good to play,
the tone is very good too. Ross N See a demo of Ross Nickerson playing it
This is one of my favorite models and it's very low priced particularly for what you get with it. I'm very confident that you won't believe when it arrives that you only paid this much for it.
Check any competitive banjo in this price range and there is no comparison.
Banjo is perfect for students just getting started. We also including The Fundamentals of Five String Banjo Book with two CDs and DVD for the lessons played at three speeds on both the CDs and DVD, and
a free membership to BanjoTeacher.com. I wish the world had banjos like this when
I was learning to play or for that matter available for the students I've had
in the past 20 years. I know more of the would have stuck with it.
It's Features include maple neck, resonator, and body, neck and resonator binding,
double coordinator rods, curly maple headstock veneer, Straight Line tailpiece,
brass tone ring, 2 way adjustable truss rod, and low action for the beginning
banjoist. Available as a lefty, and with many other options such as planetary
tuners, capo spikes, and more.
come set up and ready to play
Here is a close-up look of me holding the the new 24 bracket CC 100R Plus. This is my favorite of the Cripple Creek Models. It has a handsome brown finish, planetary tuners, great feel and tone along with an easy to play neck. My price is very good relative to the
list price too and I highly recommend this model.

CC 100R Plus Reviews
....Hi Ross, Just wanted to let you know the Gold Tone CC100R plus made it here in record time and in perfect condition. I've got to tell you the banjo looks much better in person than it does on your video clip. No disrespect intended. Thanks for all the extras that come with your package. . The banjo sounds great, feels great and looks great too. Quite a bargain for the price. I'm glad I had the chance to talk to you before I bought a banjo. Thanks again, Jon Moseley
...Ross, I am so pleased with my new CC-100R+ banjo.¬† I think that I want to play old-time, but I bought the 'R' model and you helped explain to me how to remove the resonator.¬† For now, I don't need to be loud, but who knows? I may get good enough that I want to be really heard. This banjo is so nice!¬† The finish is really shiny and uniform and the wood color is very pleasing.¬† I really appreciate the binding on the neck and the inlays marking the frets.¬† What a fine instrument to start on!¬† Actually, I'm not really starting - I bought a Sears banjo in 1968 and sold it because I had no resources for learning.¬† Now things are different.¬† Thanks for the membership and the fine introductory material.
Thank you for making this a really comfortable buying experience. Dan Kotcher
....Ross, Received my cc100-r+ today. it's great. Sounds good. Thanks for everything. Anything I need Banjo related I know where I'll be coming-BANJOTEACHER.com. Thanks again, Adrian Conley
Customer from Netherlands Dear Ross and Kathy
I received the banjo yesterday ... I am extremely satisfied with the quality of the instrument and hard case. All the extra starters' kit pieces were intact and I can't wait to start my journey with my banjo.
The finish on the banjo is excellent and the deep brown colour and clear varnish makes a quality instrument and the tight fit of the hard case just makes it all complete. The person that assembled this instrument obviously takes great pride in their work.
I am very happy that I placed my order with your company and hope to do further business with you and rest assured that if I can recommend your company to anyone looking for a banjo of quality then I will do so freely.

..The CC 100Rplus arrived today and I'm very happy with it! Great sound, really nice looking instrument.
I'm pleasantly surprised by how quickly I got a real banjo sound going with the first roll in the book.

Gold Tone CC 100R Plus customer
...Hey Ross, Just wanted to let you know, the banjo was delivered on Friday. I love it and it has the tone I was expecting. Thanks again, Ron
My banjo arrived last Friday and I have spent the weekend practicing and learning. My right hand is tired and about to fall off, but I am so pleased with the CC100R+ and the instructional items in the beginner‚Äôs package. I am wondering why I waited so long to begin playing. I wanted to thank Ross. I was having trouble with the pay pal the day I ordered my banjo. He called later that same day to straighten everything out. He waited until half-time during a Denver Bronco‚Äôs football game, just in case I was watching. I am not a football fan, but was very impressed that he would be considerate enough to wait, just in case..Thanks! Kirk Kemp Lakewood, CO
....Ross, I wanted to send you a quick e-mail to let you know the Gold Tone CC-100R+ arrived yesterday, and it is every bit as much as I hoped it would be.... Thanks for your advice and help in choosing and ordering the banjo, Glenn Cooper

......Thank you very much for sorting that out for me and it is refreshing in this day and age to have someone that has the customer in the forefront of their business.I have been looking to buy a banjo for some time now and after much searching I came across your website and the clips of Ross playing the Goldtone CC 100 R + that sealed the deal for me. I hope to do more business with your company in the future,

I had my first lesson Friday night and my teacher was very impressed with my Cripple
Creek banjo and the value pack. He told me I did very well. So more business may
come your way. I watched the first couple of lessons from your video Sunday and
found them to be first rate. I also started to read your book and it is superior
to others Ive bought.
