The ArchTop model includes a 40-hole sand-cast bell brass archtop tone ring, which produces more penetrating highs compared to a conventional flathead tone ring, as the vibrating head circumference is reduced. For banjoists who own a flat top, this is a great addition to their collection as it “cuts through” the high volumes at bluegrass jams.
