The Gold Tone AC-12 Beginner Banjo with 12 inch Rim

The AC-1 is now available as the AC-12 with a 12 inch Rim

The Gold Tone AC-1 is now available as the AC-12 with 12 inch rim instead of the standard 11 inch rim of the normal AC-1. The 12 inch rim is one inch larger in circumference can provide a deeper mellower tone if that's what you prefer.

The AC-12 model with 12 inch rim will work great for leaning and playing both Clawhammer and Three Finger Picking Styles.

The AC-1 and AC-12 banjos are in my opinion are the best beginner banjo's in this price range by a long shot. I've never seen or played a better lower priced banjo for beginners. They sound great and are easy to play and learn on. I highly recommend this one if you are shopping for a low priced beginner banjo. I've been teaching private banjo lessons since the 1970's and selling banjos online since 2001 so I've seen a lot of them.

More info

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-12 uses the composite body. Harmony made a composite banjo back in the 70's that a lot of students of mine had and they worked good. This AC design is a way better banjo than those though. It has a wood neck which those didn't and when I played the Gold Tone 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.
