All Stelling models feature the Tony Pass 600TS Old Wood rim. This wood has been lying on the bottom of Lake Superior and other bodies of water for over 100 years and could have been hundreds of years old when it was cut down. After a special kiln drying process, this wood is in better than new condition (acoustically speaking) because of the age of the wood combined with the microbiological action to which it was subjected for so many years. It’s been said that Stradivarius took advantage of the same process for his violin wood, but for a much shorter time (perhaps only a few years). This rim, installed in a Stelling banjo, is awesome. It’s been compared to prewar banjos in such a superior way for tone and volume that it is now standard on all new Stelling banjos. Includes a deluxe TKL emerald green crushed-velvet, plush-lined case.
