'80 Stelling Staghorn with Engraved Metal Parts, upgraded with Tony Pass Submerged Old Wood Rim
There is no better-sounding banjo than a Stelling, tone-wise! This is my #1 banjo, by far!
'78 Gibson Mastertone replica, upgraded and now generating clean and powerful punch-tone from a pot assembly that
includes the Tony Pass submerged old wood rim, and the new 2010 Steve Huber Engineered Tone Ring;
having the "Pre-WW2" sound because of the tone ring cast exactly like the original '34 Granada tone ring.
The rim extends the range of tone, bass notes are deeper, overall-the sound "cuts bark off trees" :)
