|00:44Banjos used for playing old time music tend to vary considerably more than bluegrass banjos. They tend to have no resonators but this is not a hard and fast rule. Reed Martin plays a Tubaphone #9 with a resonator. There are many schools of old time banjo playing but they can very loosely be separated into two families. Those who play instruments with no tone ring or a simple brass rod tone ring, and those who play instruments such as the Whyte Laydie, Tubaphone, Electric or Orpheum type banjos that have a substantial tone ring. The former groups often identify themselves with a particular player or region such as "Galax", "Round Peak" or Kyle Creed.
