Vega Tubaphone Tone Ring
This product is unavailable
Dating back to 1906, and still prized today, this all brass tone ring is hand made in the Deering factory. A spun brass outer shell, and square tubular inner ring with round sound holes, these components create a light weight tone ring with a warm, round, vibrant tone. This tone ring design has been a favorite of great dixieland players, resembles the holy grail for the old time banjoists, and had it's big revival in the folk era with Pete Seeger and the Kingston Trio in the Vega Long Necks.

Deering’s new patent-pending Smile™ Banjo Bridge is created to fit into the natural curve created on a banjo head when under string tension. This relieves the stress found in a traditional bridge allowing the Smile™ Bridge to vibrate without constriction. The result is an instantly fuller and more expressive midrange, less constricted low end frequencies, and a wonderful balance across all strings.
Please indicate if you would like the standard string spacing or the wider JD Crowe string spacing in the notes at checkout.
