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 Target Waterbase Brushing Varnish.

Maple banjo rim, blank

Exactly what I was expecting, maybe a bit on the too-thick side, not set yet on a lathe, but I'm expecting a perfect result. Brass tone ring (flat) to go with it.

3 Ply rim

Great buy. Fantastic to machine. Very hard wood and easy to obtain a great finish. I just used linseed oil to bring out the grain
