Gold Tone BG-150F with Free Beginner Banjo Kit

The Gold Tone BG 150F is an excellent beginner banjo. It is lightweight, easy to play, has a wood back resonator for bluegrass, neck inlay and stays in tune.

The BG 150 F is a full size, bluegrass banjo includes features typical of our pro model but is lighter in weight and easier to play and carry.

It is an excellent instrument for players looking for a lighter weight bluegrass banjo. This instrument is the next step above our CC models and uses a one piece flat flange and has a full size 14 inch resonator.

.....I found Ross's website and gave him a call to discuss my dream. Ross was so kind to learn what I wanted to do and helped me decide on the GoldTone BG150F. I immediately reviewed the information and took my first lesson with Ross on his video included with the banjo.After an hour of fun, I can't wait till my first bluegrass song I will play! Thanks Ross! I feel like I have made a new friend.

Hi Mr. Ross, I got my banjo today. Don't know how you got it here so soon I was expecting it 1st or 2nd week of March. Thanks so much! It is beautiful. I will be contacting you in a few days I would Like the banjo encyclopedia book and some others but have not made up my mind yet.

I was very impressed with your 'service after the sale', which
I did a fair amount of research before I decided to buy the Gold Tone BG-150F from you.  I had narrowed my choices down to the BG-150 and the Morgan Monroe Cascade, both were within my price range, but when I heard you playing the Gold Tone in the demo video on your site, I was sold on the tone right away. I was also very impressed with your 'service after the sale', which to me, is very important. (I'm going to need all the help I can get!) Anyhow, thanks for the response, and I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time at your site over the next year or so.

I couldn't be happier with the BG150.
Hi Ross, A couple of month’s back I purchased a Gold Tone BG150-F from you, and today just ordered the Banjo Encyclopedia as well. I just wanted to let you know that the learning process has been going great! I'm just finishing up with the "Fundamentals" book and figured it was time to step up to the next level. I couldn't be happier with the BG150. The tone and quality of the instrument are perfect for my needs, and I've never had more fun learning an instrument in my life. Who says an old dog can't learn new tricks? Your instruction books and videos help make the learning experience smooth and satisfying. Thanks for everything. See you around the WEB.

Thank you very much
We received the BG 150F. It's gorgeous! It sounds beautiful. We're looking forward to learning how to get more beautiful sounds out of it.

Thank you very much
Ross, Got my Gold Tone BG 150 F yesterday afternoon…how beautiful! Free time this weekend will be spent wisely! Thanks for everything! Jim

Thank you Ross for recommending it
Hi Ross, I received the BG-150F banjo and it was in perfect condition and in tune. The action is lower than my 1980 Stelling and I know the Stelling needs an adjustment. The BG-150F is easy to play, the tone is pleasant, and looks and feels like a masterpiece. Thank you Ross for recommending it . I hope to attend a workshop in Florida and keep me on your email list.I will be in Naples this winter and if you know any teachers in that area please let me know. I have all your CD's , Dvd's , and books and will check into lessons on line.
