We make a few different styles of silverspun rims here in the shop. One type has the nickel turned over a tone ring on the top of the rim. The other style leaves the nickel un turned and flush with the top of the rim, enabling a tone ring to be mounted over the nickel clad rim. This page features the first style, with the nickel sheet turned over a brass ring on both the top and bottom of the rim. The nickel is fairly thick and a softer metal, creating a very rigid rim with a very warm, clear tone. These banjos have slightly less volume than my other banjo models, but have a very lovely and unique tone in exchange. Especially nice for finger picking as well.
