Tone Ring Resonator

without comments

The tone ring on a banjo is the heaviest part of the instrument, and it’s often made out of solid brass.  It’s mounted between the wooden pot and the head of the banjo.  The ring is set about an inch under the head and goes all the way around the main body of the banjo, allowing the head to be stretched over the area.  Brass is generally used because it adds extra tone to your music.

A tone ring resonator banjo is really no different from a standard banjo except, of course, it uses a resonator to create the sounds.  The tone ring requires no changes to be used in a resonator banjo. In fact, you can use any tone ring you like with your resonator banjo.  Some use classic rings, many of which are made from brass.  The Madison Resonator Banjo, for example, makes use of a standard Mastertone-style tone ring.  Others prefer using wood tone rings.  The different materials do not impact the tone quite as much as they might on a traditional banjo because all the sound comes from the resonator.
