Enter our free drawing for your chance to win one of two Gold Tone AC-1 acoustic composite open-back banjos. That's right, we're picking two winners!

Proclaimed "Best in Show / MUST Stock" instrument at the 2016 Summer NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Show in Nashville, Tennessee, the Gold Tone AC-1 sets the bar for an economical, well-made, great-sounding and durable beginner banjo.

The composite rim mated to a slim, playable neck, produces a banjo that weighs less than four pounds. The AC-1 is the perfect choice for beginners, travel use or for a child's first banjo.
