Gold Tone 5 String Maple Mountain Openback Banjo

sku# CMM150


The Maple Mountain 150 exemplifies Gold Tone's mission: to give you the best instrument for your money. The MM-150 was our first openback banjo and it still offers features found on many higher-priced banjos for less than you'd expect to pay. The half-inch-thick maple rim carries an authentically-designed Whyte Laydie-style scalloped three-piece brass tone ring under an eleven-inch Remo Renaissance head. Premium parts include a comfortable maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with snowflake inlays and a frailing scoop, vintage Fairbanks-style headstock design, planetary tuners, a reproduction of the early 1900s armrest (secured by the banjo's bracket hooks), and No Knot tailpiece. The MM-150 is completely set up at the Gold Tone Factory.
