Specs
The Five-Star Whyte Laydie consists of a round steel tone hoop resting on a scalloped brass ring, held in place by a thin spun-brass outer sleeve. 11" (279.40mm) diameter, nickel-plated.

A high crown or medium crown banjo head is usually required for this tone ring.

For optimum fit, measure the tone ring with a dial caliper before lathe-turning your wood rim.

Whyte Laydie Tone Ring

Bought one of these nearly 30 years ago.The banjo I made with your tone ring and 3 ply rim has been sitting in it's box for the past 20 years.
Recently I got it out to compare with fairbanks Vegas as played on youtube,didn't have that convenience 20 years ago.Honestly I couldn't say any of them sound any better than the banjo I made using your tone ring and pot assembly,I feel like my banjo is just as good with the same sweet sound quality.If you are using the same formula now for your tone rings I would recommend to anybody.the other hardware was good quality too,the nickel plating is still in good condition.
