Unboxing my new banjo!

It’s finally here everyone!!  I had things to get done before I could open it so I’ve brought you along for the ride.  Hope you enjoy!  The banjo is a Gold Tone CC-OT.

I got this banjo for several reasons.

  1. Weight – it weighs less than my WL-250
  2. Depth – the pot isn’t as deep and just for comfort
  3. I needed something that might not hurt as much if I play standing.  My WL is heavy and it hurts my neck and shoulders when I play with a strap on it.
  4. I also wanted something that was less expensive to be outside in the garden playing and toting around with me wherever I go.  Not that this is cheap by any means, but it does cost less than the WL.
  5. GT and everyone has had to change from rosewood fretboard material to blackwood.  I wanted something made with this material to give it a good review.
  6. Plus it’s never really a bad time to buy a banjo right?????

You can expect me to be playing this banjo in my videos and I’ll bet you can tell some unique differences in sound.
