FLATHEAD 20 HOLE BANJO TONE RING

The Gibson Mastertone-style 20-hole Flathead design favoured by bluegrass players since the 1940s. 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. A high crown or medium crown banjo head is usually required for this tone ring.
