Five-Star Rolled Brass Tone Ring

Popular for building old-time banjos!
Our versatile "tone hoop" has become a favorite among makers of old-time banjos.

This rolled brass tone ring fits a simple routed or lathe-turned ledge on a banjo rim, and gives a crisp tone for a variety of playing styles. Unplated brass.

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

Rounded tone

This ring has more bottom than the standard rolled brass ring that I normally use. I fitted it on a rim with a rolled brass ring that was too short. The resulting tone was similar to an old Mastertone with a calf skin head. Some great discoveries come from mistakes.

If you made the same mistake that I did, bought a cheap banjo to get started with and soon out grew the thud instead of banjo twang, not all is lost. I bought the brass ring and new head, took a couple of hours to change them out and what a difference. This cheap thing actually rings like the big boys. Thanks guys for having such a product for improving a banjo's sound.
