Take the Guesswork Out of Head Tuning with a Banjo Drum Dial!
A banjo's head tension is one of the most important factors contributing to its tone, and improper head tension is often why banjos do not sound to their potential. There are various methods used to properly adjust head tension, including the tap-tuning method.
However, even a proper tap-tuning can fail to uncover deeper issues sometimes present, such as uneven tension across the surface or even a broken head. Check out this video where Jake Stogdill, manager of Banjo Ben's General Store, demonstrates a surefire way to ensure perfect and even head tension–every time!
