Hello,‘Trying to learn more about Vega rims as installed by the original Vega..What rim construction/style did Vega use with their tubaphone ring banjos before Vega was purchased by Martin?How did their approach to/style of rims paired with the tubaphone ring change (if it did) from the beginning of the tubaphone ring up to that point?Did higher end banjos that had tubaphone rings get different rims from their low end ones; if so, how were the rims different?Thank you.Rockyjo
