The Timber-Tronic Tone Ring is made of exotic hard wood- typically grenadillo or moradillo. Cocobolo, as pictured, is available as an upgrade.
It shaves about three pounds off the weight of a Nechville with a bronze ring and fits any Heli-Mount banjo rim. Just like our bronze rings,
it works with our Cyclotronic ball bearing system. You don't lose the bluegrass sound. It's a sound
all its own and can be every bit as bright and punchy.
It's also available with a titanium hoop upgrade. In that case it's a circle of lightweight titanium pushing up against the head- so you still get the metal sound the banjo is known for, while saving big on weight.
