Gold Tone CC Mini - Banjo for Kids or Travel Practice Banjo

The Gold Tone CC Mini Banjo is the perfect banjo for kids to learn play banjo on and in my opinion the best small banjo for children or adults traveling.

It is a banjo that is easy to travel with, practice, and great for kids and youth banjo students to learn on.
It also makes a great, easy to carry and practice on adult travel size banjo.

It has a maple neck and rim, 19 frets, sealed geared tuning machines, Straight Line tailpiece and snowflake inlay. Options include heavily padded gig bag, strap pegs, banjo style planetary tuners, and 5th string capo spikes. It has a maple neck and rim, 19 frets, sealed geared tuning machines, Straight Line tailpiece and snowflake inlay. Options include a flat back resonator, heavily padded gig bag, strap pegs, banjo style planetary tuners, and 5th string capo spikes.

Open C Tuning
It is the has same maple neck (but tuned to Open C, like the fifth fret of a full-sized banjo) and hard rock maple rim (but just eight inches in diameter) make the Mini a perfect travel banjo or the ideal child's instrument for the young picker. Also available as left-handed model.
The CC-Mini is tuned to Open C Tuning. CGCEG. When you play the banjo it will sound and play just like a normal banjo with a capo on the 5th fret. You won't have to relearn anything you already know in normal open G tuning, it will just be in the key of C. It will be the same visually and tonally as when you capo a normally Open G tuned banjo to the 5th fret. Here is a chart for transposing chords in the key of C. Transposing chords will only be necessary when playing with others.

Gold Tone CC Mini Banjo
This is an immaculately built travel banjo with a first class finish, top line components and a professional set up from Ross’s shop. Tuned to C, this is a very easy instrument to play - perfect for children because of its size, but wonderful for adults while traveling or just sitting in the back room noodling away. It comes with a heavily padded GoldTone logo gig bag and adjustment wrenches for those who like to tweak their set ups. Finally, Ross is a phone call away - customer service is responsive, personal and professional. Thank you for a very satisfactory online experience!
