Five-Star Old-Time Banjo Pot

About This Item

Traditional warm, clear tone for old-time playing styles. Five-Star pro components are the quality that banjo makers have come to expect from us for over 40 years.

Our Whyte Laydie tone ring is a round steel hoop with scalloped brass ring, held in place by a thin spun-brass outer sleeve. Tone ring is fitted to the 3-ply maple rim, ready for finishing.

    Old-time pot includes:
  • Maple banjo rim, 3/4" thick
  • Whyte Laydie tone ring
  • 24-notch brass tension hoop
  • Bracket hooks
  • Hex nuts with wrench
  • Bracket shoes and bolts

11" diameter (280mm). Hardware is nickel-plated.

Banjo head not included: a high crown or medium crown banjo head (sold separately) is usually required for this tone ring.

This pot fits our Five-Star Old-Time Banjo Neck.

Banjo pot

(Customer's Reviews)

Easy to assemble worked out great for my project


Fine pot!

(Customer's Reviews)

Hmm, I guess that title could be a bit misleading but this really is a fine pot. No voids in the built up laminates, holes drilled dead accurate, and tight, tight, tight tolerances for the lathe work for the tone ring. This pot way exceeded my hopes or expectations and is serving as an excellent base to build on. I'll be inlaying marquetry and gluing on ebony lines and it's great to know that the time invested in adding those touches will be an investment and not a waste of time. Thanks folks for doing something this great!


All you can ask for

This is a perfect, high quality banjo pot. I got a great banjo out of mine.
The only real place for improvement would be some help with locating the perfect spot for the holes for attaching the neck. I screwed up there a bit but could fix it.


Good one...

PS: delivery to Germany was 2 days - excellent job!
