The Cripple Creek Mini (CC-Mini) has similar features as popular Gold Tone Cripple Creek line in a short-scale version. This mini banjo has a perfectly straight neck and low action to maintain consistent tuning. The openback design is light and portable. The CC-Mini features an 8” maple rim and brass tone ring, guitar-style geared tuners, a geared 5th string tuner, it has great plunk for old time and the brass tone ring provides enough punch for bluegrass.
The CC-Mini is tuned to open-C but if playing with others and need to tune to standard G, the string gauges may be changed to the following: .016, .034, .024, .019, .016.
