Ever wanted to play a tune with a fiddle player but couldn't play it in the key they wanted to? One solution would be to buy a capo for your banjo, but another might be to invest in an A-scale banjo, like this sweet little CC-OTA from Gold Tone. An A-scale banjo is tuned up a whole step from a regular banjo - meaning it's quite adept at playing in the keys of A and D, two that are favorites of fiddle players. The CC-OTA also sports all of the useful extra features that a good clawhammer banjo should, including a full frailing scoop, a Fiberskyn head for extra warmth and low end, and a spike at the seventh fret, making it a great instrument for old time music. Additionally, it can also be easily tuned down to the more typical open G tuning, making it a good fit for smaller people interested in learning how to play the banjo. Included in the price is a Gold Tone gig bag, for easy and lightweight protection while transporting your instrument.
