A stock Huber banjo, do they come with long skirt or short skirt tone rings?

Long. From Huber site: "Generally, we machine to pre war specs that include an outside diameter of 11 inches, an inside skirt diameter of 10.842 inches and a skirt length of .402 inches (long skirt). A tone ring machined to these specs will NOT fit Gibson and many other modern brands of banjos. What will fit these banjos is what we call a “standard” spec tone ring which incorporates a inside skirt diameter of 10.855 inches and a skirt length of .375 inches (short skirt). "
