Rolled brass tone ring

The tone ring makes a major contribution to a banjo’s tonal character. This brass tone ring is rolled rather than cast, produces clearly ringing tone with great volume and brightness, and doesn’t weigh a banjo down too heavily.

Mahogany resonator

There’s just something about the look of a banjo with a mahogany resonator—it’s so gorgeous that it has to somehow make the music that much more beautiful.

Pearl acrylic inlays

Value meets beauty in elegantly stylized position inlays that impart a touch of stylish sophistication to the fingerboard of this finely appointed instrument.
