Three Ply Rim  Change text size for readability...  Print This Page

00:24Three ply rims are used in the best quality bluegrass banjos (excepting, of course, Stellings that use block construction) Such rims are made of three plies of 1/8" thick Rock Maple. Cheaper instruments often use more laminates, five or seven or even a continuous wrap of thin wood. The fewer plies, the less glue, the less glue the more wood.
