Specs
Machined from cast bell-bronze alloy to pre-war dimensions, it gives a deep crisp powerful tone when the instrument is played at lower frets, with great clarity at higher positions. 11" 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.

Excellent, especially for the money

Fantastic sound - I compared my banjo (with this tone ring) to some costing over £1000 and there was no comparison - mine was better by MILES!

A good, reliable piece of kit

No fancy specifications or hype - just a straightforward, reliable tone ring that delivers the goods every time. I use it mostly for upgrading the sound of Chinese- or Korean- produced resonator 5-strings. If they have even half-sensible rims, this StewMac ring brings out tones that the original manufacturers of the banjos probably wouldn't believe possible!

Awesome! Tone ring

I must say I have a lot of high end banjos and I have tried lots of tone rings, in my opinion you can't get a better sounding tone ring for the money. This ring has it all. The banjo's 4th string sounds real nice and deep and the high end strings sounds nice and crisp as well. As you play down the neck, all the notes are very nice and clean and clear. These tone rings ring like a bell. As a lot of you know, Banjo is my life and my business this is the ring I have in my banjos.
