At High Street Music we ensure your banjo is set up correctly, i.e the bridge is correctly positioned for perfect intonation, the strings are sitting at the right height on the bridge and nut slots, the truss rod is adjusted correctly to eliminate fret buzz, the brackets are tightened correctly around the banjo head and the strings are tuned up to correct pitch.
Don’t be suckered by “el cheapo” B.L.Os (Banjo Like Objects) being flogged from non-musical outlets…(I’m just gonna say it, Aldi, Cash Converters etc ) that a pro player would struggle with!
