The  Gold Tone BC-350 banjo was designed to the specifications of renowned banjoist Bob Carlin. According to Bob Carlin, the Gold Tone BC-350 banjo references Kyle Creed, a well-known musician in the Galax, Virginia area, who made banjos in the 60s and 70s.

The BC-350 features: a twelve-inch, three-ply maple pot, a dowel-stick/coordinator rod, a rolled brass tone ring, maple neck with scooped ebony fretboard, planetary-gear tuning machines, No Knot tailpiece, and "hot-dog" armrest. All metal parts are richly nickel-plated for long-wearing durability.

“The  Gold Tone BC-350 really has quite a full-spectrum sound. I always get complements on its tone.”

“The  BC-350 has a nice, full, resonant sound with good bass, but good highs and mids, too. It's got a nice old-time plunk sound to it, very agreeable to the old-time variety of banjo stuff that I do.”
