Not quite sure where to start when wanting to learn the banjo? Here it is… Never before has an entry level banjo included the features and tone of the Cripple Creek CC-100R. Check any competitive banjo in this price range and you’ll find that this model has “more bang for the buck”. The CC-100R model features a hard maple neck, rim, and convertible resonator, black binding on the neck and resonator, dual coordinator rods, curly maple headstock veneer, Straightline tailpiece, brass tone ring, 2-way adjustable truss rod, and low string action for the beginning banjoist. The CC-100R includes a resonator for increased tone and volume when playing bluegrass-style and easily converts to an open back banjo to be played clawhammer-style.
We inspect each and every instrument we ship out for maximum playability. We adjust the action and adjust intonation when needed. If you would like a specific adjustment, just add it to your order notes and we would be happy to adjust to your liking.
