Dobson Tone-Ring? YES! My new Rickard 12-inch Maple Ridge Dobson exhibits typical, flawless Canadian craftsmanship--who are these conscientious people?--and being the first time I've ever played a Dobson tone-ring banjo, it's a tone on which I'm now hooked! Is it the best tone I've ever heard? Well, let me say it's a wholly worthy tone in the tonal pallet of banjo-craftsmanship that pleases me and I assume other players too.
