The Plucky is a backpacker's dream weighing in at only two pounds! It can be tuned to open C (CGCEG) or open D (DADF#A) or even to standard G, by changing to strings gauged 016, .034, .024, .019, .016.
For an economy 5-string, the CC-50 outshines the competition. Our 12 point set-up ensures accurate intonation, easy fingering, and good tone. Optional resonator may be added later. Includes Padded Gig Bag
The CC-Mini has features similar to our famous Cripple Creek series. This shorter scale banjo has a perfectly straight neck and low action to maintain consistent tuning.
A small 5-string banjo for travel, teaching children or for simple enjoyment by anyone, the Goodtime Parlor is just plain cute. It is tuned in G just the same as a 22 fret banjo, but it is 4 inches shorter with only 19 frets.
This compact banjo with a full-sized pot is ideal packing along on vacations or when space is limited.
You've perhaps gone the route of the "bargain" banjo; it's still full-sized and maybe it didn't play or sound that terrific, either. If you want to encourage a little picker, the Gold Tone BG-Mini is the only way to go. The Mini is a for-real, actual Bluegrass banjo that's been scaled down in size to provide pint-sized pickers with a professional-grade banjo.
The stunning new Artisan Goodtime Parlor is a four inches shorter than the Artisan Goodtime making it ideal to travel with. Durable and easy to maintain, this banjo is also perfect for children.
