Notes from Ross Nickerson on the CC xx models from Goldtone.These are great sounding banjos and you can see they look really good too. Frankly I'm surprised I have not sold even more of these. This a fantastic innovation. Banjos are heavy, too heavy really, this wood rim produces a great sound without the bulky heavy feel of normal flat head tone ring banjos.
This banjo is easier to practice with and perfect for gigs when you have to stand for a long period of time. It also would work well for someone who wanted the tone of a flathead but due to physical limitations could not use the heavier bluegrass banjos, or just did not want to struggle with the normal weight of a bluegrass banjo. I am going to get one of these for my personal collection. One of my absolute favorite Goldtone models!

...Ross, got the banjo today and it sounds great. I am very happy with it and thanks for the personal service and not having to talk to a computer...

Banjos come set up and ready to play
Each banjo is played before it leaves the shop!
Along with the strict quality control that Goldtone is known for and the banjos being checked very carefully before being shipped, each banjo is given a 12 point inspection, full head tuning, setup and will arrive tuned and ready to play

I just played my customer, Dennis Lottman's OB 250LW on the Banjo Workshop Cruise this year and was blown away. The volume and clarity was better than a 3500.00 flathead banjo that another student had at the workshop. I really am impressed with this model, Ross Nickerson

Looking forward to playing the OB 250 lightweight on stage.
Thanks Ross & Kathy, ......Looking forward to playing the OB 250 lightweight on stage. I tour full time and also do music on the only remaining authentic paddlewheel riverboat doing overnight adventures in America. I think they'll like my updated version of some of John Hartford's stuff on the 250 LW. All the best,

Review on the Goldtone Orange Blossom OB 250 Lightweight
Ross, I purchased a Gold Tone OB 250LW from you recently. That is a great banjo with a sound that I find very pleasing. I hope you sell more of that model.
