Many of us start playing banjo because of our love for bluegrass, but end up falling in love with old time music and clawhammer banjo along the way. If that sounds like you, Gold Tone's CC-OT is the ideal five-string for your purposes, with everything the clawhammer player needs to really begin to develop their sound and technique. With a Remo Fiberskyn head and a rolled brass tone ring, the CC-OT has plenty of warmth and roundness in its tone, and the full frailing scoop opens up some extra real estate for drop thumb. Additionally, the new model comes equipped with planetary tuners, which not only help the banjo intone more consistently, but also makes this CC-OT look a little more authentic visually. Included in the price is a Gold Tone gig bag.
