Flange  Change text size for readability...  Print This Page

00:34Many resonator banjos use a metal flange to cover the gap between the rim and the resonator wall. Some are individual pieces that fit between the nut and the bracket shoe. Others use two or three pieces the same way. On many banjos, including the Gibson Mastertone and its many copies, the flange takes the place of the shoes and is cast in one piece (One Piece Flange) or two pieces (Tube and Plate Flange.) These fit snugly up against a ledge or protrusion of wood on the outside of the rim.
