lavoi's review - Gold Tone Criple Creek CC-50RP

CC-50RP, manufactured under license in China Gold Tone (R resonator, P Pack)
5 string bluegrass banjo with mahogany resonator, brass tone, good mechanical
Very well regulated, low action, well positioned easel

Do not hesitate to take along with metal finger tabs for it is a pain to find (plus I'm in Paris ...)
FYI I am waiting to receive a book-CD "Banjo Songs" by Geoff Hohwald who seems not too bad and there are more than ...
