Best in Namm Show - Goldtone AC-1
I was at the NAMM show and played the banjo. This is just what the banjo market has needed. A low priced beginner banjo for "newbie" banjo students on a budget that is not a piece of, (pardon me), junk. Having a new banjo of this quality in this price range will also help to save beginner banjo students that are shopping on a budget from buying a cheap used one that may need repairs or is unplayable. I've seen it happen often and it can literally stop a students dream of learning banjo dead in it's tracks. Not only is AC-1 in that price range but it's solid and works great. All banjos we sell including the AC-1 all come set-up and ready to play, they include free banjo lesson instruction DVD, free online banjo lesson access and a low priced beginner package with all you need. I'm serious about how good this banjo is to learn on. The banjo is stable, stayed in tune and the intonation was perfect. You don't need problems with a banjo when you are just learning to tune one for the first time.

with the Goldtone AC-1

The AC 1 uses the composite body like an Ovation Guitar. Harmony also made a composite banjo back in the 70's that a lot of students of mine had and they worked good. This AC-1 is a way better banjo than those though. It has a wood neck which those didn't and when I played the AC-1 the intonation was perfect up and down the neck. The composite body is an efficient method for producing a  bright, loud sounding 5-string banjo to learn on. In my opinion the composite design is tons better than the aluminum "bottle cap" banjo design that has been around forever. The bottle cap is the 30 bracket design that you see today on the beginner Washburn, Fender and Epiphone models as well as a host of other generically named Asian banjos. Gold Tone in general is a cut above any of the banjo brands that just stamp there name on imports like newer models of Fenders, Washburn and Epiphone banjos. Gold Tone is a banjo company that designs banjos for banjo players... by.... banjo players.

Travel Banjo or Easy to Play Practice Banjo
If you a more experienced banjo player and already have a primary banjo the AC-1 makes a great travel or light and easy to play practice banjo too. It weighs only 3lbs and 10 ounces so it's perfect for beginners, on the go and also for kids to learn banjo on.
