Traditional 1930s style. Our banjo rims are constructed for strength, density and traditional tone.
This is an undrilled oversize 3-ply maple blank, unfinished and ready for lathe-turning in your shop. It must be turned to fit the 11" (279.40mm) diameter tone ring of your choice, and to fit a one-piece resonator flange or bracket shoes.
This is a high quality rim for bluegrass, jazz or old-time banjos.
Diameter 11-3/16" (284.16mm)
Thickness 7/8" (22.23mm)
Depth 2-3/4" (69.85mm)
Note: We don't offer custom lathe-turning services. For accuracy when turning a rim, use a dial caliper to take dimensions directly from the tone ring and resonator flange.
Easy finishing options
ColorTone Aerosol Guitar Lacquer is an economical way for the beginner to apply a finish without elaborate setup or equipment. Only a few cans are needed to completely finish a rim. Or try brush-on application with ColorTone Waterbase Brushing Varnish.
