This is Nechville's very innovative new tone ring. It combines their well-known wood ring with a brass hoop similar to that used on some prewar Gibson banjos. Nechville sent me one of them recently to put in a banjo and I was extremely impressed. Although I don't make sound clips, anyone in the Washington, DC area is welcome to visit my shop and try it. The light weight will spoil you for other banjos! The ring is on a standard Nechville ball bearing rim, so it can easily be put in a metal tone ring Nechville banjo in 10-15 minutes without even removing the strings.
