Woodchuck or possum?

From truenorth53 on 9/15/2017 3:30:42 PM

I am on the horns of a dilemma.  I will be playing this banjo primarily in D tuning and just cannot decide between the brass tone ring woodchuck or Persimmon wood tone ring  Possum.  I play primarily with a fiddler and not in group setting.  Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.

A Possum will give you enough volume to be heard with the fiddler and provide a great OT sound. Fiddle and wooden tonering smacks of OT music to me.

I've never played either, but I played a really lovely 12" Ramsey Woody (with a bubinga tone ring?) and I really loved its tone. I don't recall it being noticeably quiet.

I have a Possum, and really appreciate the warm tone of the persimmon. I feel I get plenty of volume and you should have no trouble at all with a fiddle. Good luck on you aural adventure!

Ok now the next question is walnut or cherry?

O. K. today I said to my wife of 47 years something I never would have thought likely. Honey, I bought a Possum today!
