A very important decision to make when deciding to learn banjo is choosing which instrument is best for you.  Although many entry level banjos seem like a great deal, they can actually stifle your ability to learn by being hard to play, and hard to listen to.

The keys to success are:

1) proper setup, which keeps the strings low over the fingerboard (easier to play) while maximizing the pressure over the bridge (more volume),

2) quality parts that fit right and tight (eliminates rattle and buzzes and efficiently transfers string vibration into tone production), and top grade materials.

The Cripple Creek Bluegrass Banjo Package was designed with this in mind. These banjos are built with quality parts and professionally setup in the Gold Tone shop with low string action and accurate intonation. You will find it a joy to tune and play.

This package, with all the extras (strap, gig bag, instructional DVD, picks, and CCT Clip-on Tuner), is your passport to the world of bluegrass banjo.

Gig Bag, Strap, Bluegrass Instructional DVD, CCT-Clip-on Electronic Tuner, Finger and Thumb Picks.
