This is an outstanding banjo I've built using only high quality parts.
The pot is a "one off" cast aluminium which incororates the arch top tone ring into the pot. Being one piece there's no tone or volume loss. It also makes the banjo a lot lighter than a convential timber pot & heavy brass tone ring.
It has a Deering Kevlar head (try & break this puppy)
If you don't love it send it back.
