Hi all. Has anyone had experience or heard a top tension with a Tony Pass thin skirt woody rim - archtop or the "almost flat top" one?
What about with a carbon fiber ring? I'm thinking of getting one made.
Grateful for any comments
I just had my Alvarez converted to a woodie similar to the almost flathead (not exactly, but similar), and also putting one in the banjo I'm building right now. The Alvarez sound PHENOMENAL. It's not a top tension, but man does it sound good.
