About this banjo
A complete package designed for the novice clawhammer picker, The Gold Tone CC-OTA has everything you need to start thumping that head. The Remo Fiberskyn head itself is mounted on a sweet banjo with a half-inch-thick maple rim topped with a rolled-brass hoop (very Old Timey). The comfy maple A-scale neck (tuned two frets higher than the standard G banjo) has a rosewood fretboard complete with scoop, and both the neck and the rim wear a rich brown satin finish. Other furnishings include a No Knot tailpiece, a Vega-style armrest, and vintage Fairbanks-style headstock shape. All of this works in complete harmony courtesy of the Gold Tone pro-luthier setup in good old Florida. A gig bag, a banjo strap, a seventh-fret fifth-string spike and the popular Bob Carlin instructional DVD complete this all-inclusive starter solution. Available as left-handed model.

I would recommend them to anyone and everyone
Fantastic banjos sold by fantastic people. I have bought two banjos from Banjo.com and about to buy my third from them. These guys are just great people to go business with; knowledge, banjo players themselves, and just super nice. I do business with them because they are not just looking to sell my any banjo. They provide great input based upon what I want and need; not just what cost the most. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone interested in getting a banjo.
Highly recommend them to others
Barry at Banjo.com helped me make a great choice on purchasing a new banjo. He answered my emails and phone calls promptly. After a few conversations I went with his newly designed Bish Line Coal Dust. I ordered it and he kept me updated on its progress. It arrived in perfect condition and it's even nicer than he described. I will keep Banjo.com at the top of my list for any future purchases and would highly recommend them to others. Thank you again to Barry and his staff.
I couldn't be more pleased with this lovely instrument and the customer service
I recently purchased a Deering Sierra mahogany open back banjo from Banjo.com. Since I live in north Georgia, only two and one-half hours from the home of Banjo.com, I was able to visit the Banjo Barn where Barry give me the opportunity to "test drive" several banjos and he assisted me in narrowing down to my final choice. I must say, I couldn't be more pleased with this lovely instrument and the customer service I received from Barry and Banjo.com. Thank you!
