Gold Tone CC-OTA Travel Size Clawhammer Banjo

Comes Tuned to Open G Tuning

This Banjo is great for Children learning the play clawhammer banjo styles too,

The CC OT A is a shorter neck scale open back banjo that is 19 frets long instead of the 22 frets on a normal length 5-string banjo. The CC OT A is an open back old timey clawhammer that banjo works great as a travel banjo, for a younger person, or for just something easier to reach and play. These banjos are described as A scale because they are normally tuned to Open A but can be easily tuned to open G like normal 5-string banjos as long as you are not using light gauge strings. We can set them up tuned to open G tuning by request at no extra charge and frankly that is what most A scale banjo owners do, they are in it for the size, not the A tuning. thanks, Ross Nickerson/Owner of
