The Huber 844 tone ring is cast from a leaded, semi-red brass alloy which is readily available and economical. The great thing is that it produces a remarkable tone ring. We have been manufacturing this ring since 2003. It produces a rich and responsive instrument, as evidenced by the strong popularity of the many builders who use it in their private label banjos, as well as the many banjo players who love it. The Huber 844 tone ring is used in our “Workhorse” model banjo.



The Huber 844 Flathead tone ring, as well as all Huber tone rings, CAN be manufactured to a number of different specifications. Generally, we machine to pre war specs that include an outside diameter of 11 inches, an inside skirt diameter of 10.842 inches and a skirt length of .402 inches (long skirt).  A tone ring machined to these specs will NOT fit Gibson and many other modern brands of banjos. What will fit these banjos is what we call a “standard” spec tone ring which incorporates a inside skirt diameter of 10.855 inches and a skirt length of .375 inches (short skirt).  But not to worry! If you have a professional grade banjo with an 11” inch diameter rim (3/4” thickness), we can make a ring to fit.

We strongly urge you to send us your rim when ordering a Huber 844 ring, so we can fit it perfectly to the rim. This will ensure the optimum tone and response from your Huber tone ring.

Please contact us if you are uncertain whether our ring will fit your banjo, or to find out more about Huber tone rings.

Please allow up to two weeks for shipping.
