Gold Tone CC-50RP Beginner Banjo - FREE Beginner Banjo Kit

5.00/5 - 4 reviews

New product

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 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.

This is the second CC-50RP
Hi! This is the second CC-50RP I've purchased from you guys - we liked the first one so much that we're buying one for my sister. Thanks for being awesome and having great customer service!

What a high quality beginning instrument!
.....Ross, I received my banjo starter package yesterday and everything was great! What a high quality beginning instrument! Thanks for working with the APO address and supporting us overseas. I thought I would have to force myself for the next six months not to pick up my guitar or mandolin, but I can barely put my banjo down much to the chagrin of my neighbors! Thank you,
