Our best selling Old Time package (includes case, strap, and tuner) is now available as an A-scale model for un-capoed play in the most popular Old Time keys of A and D.
The Cripple Creek CC-0TA is Gold Tone’s recommended entry level openback A-scale banjo. A world above the standard CC-50TR model, the CC-0TA comes in a complete package designed to learn clawhammer style banjo. They sound and play to way a real openback banjo should! The banjo includes a maple neck, scooped rosewood fingerboard with 5th string capo spike, a Fiberskyn banjo head, No Knot tailpiece, Vega-style armrest, vintage Fairbanks headstock design, and geared tuners. The package also includes a gig bag, a banjo strap, and the popular Bob Carlin Instructional DVD where he discusses the fundamentals of clawhammer banjo techniques and teaches several traditional songs with tablature. With a complete setup at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida, the CC-0TA is durable, has low string action, and is a pleasure to learn on!
The CC-OTA will tune to standard G-tuning using a Medium gauge set of banjo strings.
