    Gold Tone OT-800 FANTASTIC BANJO

    I picked up this banjo to replace my Gold Tone CC-50, an entry level banjo that I learned on for two years. I wanted a more solid instrument, with better traditional tuning pegs and a little more growling tone, and louder.The OT-800 delivers and then some. First of all I got it for a song, $605, on a price drop, so keep an eye on the item and buy low. The banjo is a tubaphone, so it has a metal hoop holding the brackets instead of holes in the pot. The result is a clean, funky look and a strong tone. It is much heavier than the CC-50, but it holds tune forever, is as solid as a rock, and the tone ring give a huge range of sound, from a nice loud growl to a nice ringing mountain banjo sound, especially when played on the frailing scoop.Fit and finish were outstanding, delivery was flawless at the height of the holiday season and I love my new axe.

    Gold Tone OT-800 banjo

    After years of playing and building guitars and mandolins, I decided to give banjo a serious look. A few years ago, a customer had given me a Terry Mead open back banjo with a brass tone ring.. I really liked the old timey sound of open back banjo and over the years, I even learned to play a little. Since I retired I thought it was time to play more and upgrade banjos. I read all the reviews on open back banjos I could find and decided the Gold Tone OT-800 offered the most bang for the buck and compared favorably with some high end banjos. I ordered the banjo and it arrived two days later, even with standard shipping. (It shipped from Arizona to California). The banjo was as advertized; excellent workmanship, perfectly set up and a beautiful old timey sound. It came in a nice, sturdy, plush lined hard case. Until the Eastman instruments became available a few years ago, I would never have considered a Chinese instrument. The Eastmans were well made, quality instruments that looked... 5/5 John Bartlett (San Diego, Ca) - See all my reviews, December 25, 2012

    Gold Tone OT-800 (Tubaphone Banjo)

    5/5 Lazir Asyab (ELIZABETH, IN, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gold Tone OT-800 Banjo (Five String, Vintage Mahogany) (Electronics) This Gold Tone banjo is a quality musical instrument. Cosmetically it's fit and finish is excellent, from the pearl tuner knobs to the MOP inlay to the pot and tailpiece it is just a beautiful piece of work. The tone projection is wonderful, it rings with sound and the sustain is pleasure to the ears. The banjo comes with a well constructed and beautifully detailed case. The purchase was an easy transaction and delivery was quick. I own four Gold Tone banjos, the WL-250 which I string with nylgut strings, the CEB-5 Cello banjo and the OT-6 (LoJo). I have found the best purchase prices, for three of these instruments, on Amazon. However, if you are looking to buy, comparison shop and watch daily because the prices change often.
