The Cripple Creek Mini (CC-Mini) has similar features as the popular Gold Tone Cripple Creek line in a short-scale version (tuned to C, like the fifth fret of a full-sized banjo). This mini banjo has a perfectly straight neck and low action to maintain consistent tuning. The openback design is light and portable. The CC-Mini features an 8 in. maple rim and brass tone ring, guitar-style geared tuners, a geared 5th string tuner, it has great plunk for old time and the brass tone ring provides enough punch for bluegrass.
