A great way to get started learning this great American instrument.

The Cripple Creek CC-0T is Gold Tone’s recommended entry-level openback banjo. The CC-0T comes in a complete package designed to learn clawhammer-style banjo. They sound and play the way a real openback banjo should. The banjo includes a maple neck, scooped rosewood fingerboard with 5th string capo spike, a Fiberskyn banjo head, No Knot tailpiece, Vega-style armrest, vintage Fairbanks headstock design, and geared tuners. The package also includes a gig bag, a banjo strap, an installed capo spike and the popular Pick Up Your Banjo & Play: Clawhammer Banjo DVD by Ben Carlin where he discusses the fundamentals of clawhammer banjo techniques and teaches several traditional songs with tablature. With a complete setup at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida, the CC-0T is durable, has low string action, and is a pleasure to learn on.
