Five-Star Whyte Laydie Banjo Tone Ring

About This Item

This traditional 3-piece Fairbanks tone ring design from the late 1800s gives clear, rich old-time sound for open-back banjo.

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.

I purchased this to replace the tone ring on a blue grass banjo, it sounds much better than expected and works perfectly.
