Buy your Gold Tone Cripple Creek CC-50 With Gig Bag from Eagle Music Shop and receive our premier workshop setup at no extra cost.

Entry level banjos must be designed for easy learning.  The Cripple Creek CC-50 is just that!  The CC-50 model is where the Gold Tone full-size banjo line begins.  This model is among Gold Tones top sellers as they are specifically designed to play perfectly, sound great, and be affordable. 

The openback design featured in this model is ideal for the “old time” banjo style of playing.  Other features include a hard maple neck and maple rim, guitar-style tuners, a geared 5th string tuner, single coordinator rod, Straightline tailpiece, rosewood fingerboard, and a rolled brass tone ring.  With a complete setup at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida, the CC-50 is the perfect model for the entry level banjo player.

The CC-50 includes a light-duty Gold Tone gig bag for easy transport.

It's a really nice item. Pleasing on the eye - personally I prefer the sound to a resonator (is that what they're called?)I was using previously. I love it - it's a lot of fun. I would recommend it to anyone who is prepared to hear me drone on about it! :-)
