The tone ring is the “gatekeeper” of energy transmitted by the head into the pot.  much subtlety of tone comes from the tone ring,

which is why they are called tone rings. The shape, weight, and type of material are all important, but most of all,

there has to be a happy marriage between the rim and the tone ring.
