Here we have a nice vintage Kay tenor modified by Trad Banjo to include an archtop tone ring.  The addition of this ring adds volume, punch, brighter tone, and sustain to what is commonly a less desirable banjo.  This banjo looks great and sounds much better than anything available for the price, and will outperform any new banjo double the price.

We added a solid 5/16" round brass tone ring, a new head, new strings, and a new tailpiece.  We also level and dressed the frets and gave it a quick cleaning.  This is setup with a nice low action and a straight neck.  It comes with a chipboard case.  It will be packaged well and shipped fully insured.
