First of all, I wouldn't have spent this kind of money on a tone ring had I not had the opportunity to test-drive the thing. I walked into the Huber display at SPBGMA this winter and was greeted by Jim Runnels who gave me the lowdown on the new rings and rims,
and then had me play several instruments with the prototype rims
and the new HR-30 rings as well as a pre-war RB-3 for comparison. I was shocked. I had never imagined that I would play a new banjo that was indistinguishable from a pre-war instrument, but their prototype with the mahogany neck was just dead on right! I bought a ring right then, took it home and put it on a 1939 TB-75 raised-head conversion which I'd tried five different rings on and never really gotten it to sound like I thought it should. Until now. And it's been getting better ever since. Full, resonant,
rings like a bell all the way down, and has the kind of note separation that makes your playing really pop. I'm now saving up
for another one.

i know its hard to tell the difference between hype and the real deal. with that said i can say i feel i have a good understanding of what a good five is supposed to sound like. i thought my 30s 11 was a good one and it was good. now its great these rings are dead on and you dont have to take my words just go hear one. it has it all plenty of everything and could not be happier. on a scale of 1 to 10 i would have to say its a 110. but please dont take my word you owe it to yourself to hear it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the more i play this thing the better it gets if you want to feel it in your bones this is the ring for you.

The New Huber HR-30 Tone Ring is everything people have said. It still has the Huber sound, but with more power and tone than the orig. Huber ring. Its clearer up the neck than the old ring. Fit perfectly in to my Lancaster. I really like this ring!
