  • An extremely simple model captures the essence of the interaction of a banjo tone ring with the wood rim. The large scale, low frequency resonances of the assembled system are related to the weights and resonant frequencies of the tone ring and rim separately. Very crude measurements satisfy the derived relations within about 5% for the lowest frequency modes and give qualitative agreement for the next ones on a particular, heavy-tone-ring resonator banjo. The two combined sub-systems become… CONTINUE READING
