I have built a few block maple rims with good success, but lost bass in my last build. Banjo is a OB250+. It sounds great with good treble and volume, but I would like my bass back.
I have been wanting to try a bluegrass rim made of Rock Maple with a Red Ebony top also Known as Australian Ironwood, which my tonering would sit on top of. Has anybody tried something like this?
I am interested if there would be more bass,treble,volume or sustain.
I made a thin skirt rim and lost my bass response, so I am trying to get it back without fitting the 3 ply rim back.
I am using a JLS tonering which I really like.
Look forward to any feedback.
