Thread: Gold Tone BUB tone ring question

  1. #1

    Default Gold Tone BUB tone ring question

    I understand the Gold Tone BUB Baritone Banjo Ukulele does not come equipped with a tone ring. Does anyone know what the rim looks like - is it champhered?
    Thanks in advance

    Have you checked with Goldtone? Sometimes off to shows, but usually very responsive and helpful.

    What this means is that it doesn't have a "metal" tone ring, so the rim(maple I believe) will be chamfered as you suggest to form an "integrated maple tone ring". I am not too familiar with this BUB but I have a similar rim on my Recording King RK 025 BR 5 string banjo. I have also made 4 banjos, one of which I chamfered on the inside. in a similar way when they were turned on the lathe.
