Gold Tone CC-OT Beginner Clawhammer Banjo

Notes from Ross Nickerson on the CC OT Banjo

The Gold Tone CC OT Beginner Clawhammer Banjo comes with a free beginner frailing/clawhammer/old time banjo instruction DVD from Bob Carlin, a free banjo case, a shoulder strap that is made specifically for banjo and a 5th string capo spike for playing in the Key of A. It also has the Old Time Banjo scooped neck standard and when I played it the tone was mellow and responsive. Ross N

I couldn't be more pleased.
I learned 3 finger in the mid 1970's and have owned a Stelling Sunflower for 30+yrs. I turned 70 recently and handling/playing the Stelling has to physical for comfort so I thought I'd give claw hammer and a lighter banjo a try. I couldn't be more pleased. A comfortable weight, great tone and playability. No, it's not as fancy as my Stelling but it's brought the joy of playing banjo back to me.

It sounds great!
Hey Ross, I wanted to let you know that I did get the banjo on Monday and its in good shape. I've been playing it everyday since. It sounds great!
That's great news Ben, I knew that was the right one. Have fun playing and practicing! Thanks again, Ross
