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 banjo students in the past would have stuck with it.
Notes from Ross Nickerson on the CC 50 models from Goldtone.
Lots of customers called to ask me the main difference between the Goldtone Cripple Creek 50 models and the Cripple Creek 100 models. Let me try to boil it down to simpler terms and try to help you make a more informed decision.
Some of the primary differences are; the body of the CC 50 models are made of mahogany which makes the banjo a bit quieter. One of the advantages to the CC 50 RP is they come standard with planetary tuning pegs.
These are great banjos to start with, they stay in tune, play easy and are easy to learn on. I've taught many students who have learned on these banjos with much success and also had lots of satisfied customers at BanjoTeacher.com. The 100 models cost a bit more and are a step up but these 50 models hold their own and are an excellent entry level banjo. Ross Nickerson

Zero Glide Nut Installation Special
I am running a Zero Glide Nut Special on this banjo. $30 instead of $75 to install.
Recently we added the zero glide nut to a CC 50RP for a customer that requested it and we could not believe how good the banjo sounded. It got me excited about it so I am offering it at a big discount for no other reason than BECAUSE I love good sounding banjos and I want you to learn to play and have fun doing it. Zero Glide Info
