This Week's "Learn for Less!" Deal - Steve Huber: Killer Tone from Acutab

Posted by schlange on Monday, April 15, 2013

This week's deal is on "Steve Huber: Killer Tone" from Acutab. This is the best banjo setup video I've ever seen, and this week (thru Sunday) you can get it for 30% off ($21 instead of $30) if you use the promo code g4f96i9 in the Banjo Hangout Video Lessons store.

Here is the full DVD description:
Detailed instruction and demonstration on proper banjo set up and maintenance
A recurring frustration for banjo players at every level of skill and experience is the seeming mystery that surrounds setting up your instrument for that Killer Tone . We all know that sound when we hear it — a banjo that cuts through a jam or a band while still retaining the rich, sweet tone that defined the classic bluegrass recordings of the 40’s and 50’s. We know it when we hear it, but how do we set the head tension, coordinator rods, bridge and tailpiece to get the sound we are looking for from our own banjos?
In this 80 minute video, renowned banjo craftsman Steve Huber shares the insight and experience that has made him the go to guy for top professional players when it’s time for some banjo tweaking. It would be difficult to visit a major bluegrass festival where several of the pickers were not playing a banjo that Steve had set up or modified in some way. Now, you can profit from Steve's expertise right in your own home as he walks you through the most critical aspects of banjo set up in an easy to follow, step by step presentation. Even if you are afraid to touch the nuts that hold your banjo together, this video will provide a lot of useful information about how the instrument works.

About "Learn for Less!"

We've started featuring a particular banjo lesson DVD which you can purchase from our video lessons catalog at a very good discount for a limited time. I'm doing this to:

  1. give members a good deal on the most popular videos and
  2. to help get the word out about our great video catalog since a lot of members don't know about it.

Did you know the catalog now supports tablets and smart phones? Videos you purchased can be watched immediately online on your desktop, tablet, or smartphone. They can also be downloaded for offline viewing on those devices.

Sounds great. I just bought it but the funky little Brain Player thing doesn't want to download so I cannot get my purchase yet. I have an email into the brain player people. BanjoHangout Video Lessons Module installed fine, but when I start that up, I see the huber video in My Stuff but can't get past that. It stalls on the download brain player step.

You can also watch it instantly (without downloading it first) via the CloudPlayer, which is at

This only works if you're on a broadband connection, of course, but most folks are nowadays.

Please be advised - you CANNOT put the DVD on a disc so you can play it on a little portable DVD player. The audio/video files are encrypted so they will only play with the BHO Video Player Software which of course requires a pc. A little bit of a downside but it is a very good video from Huber. And once you have it, you don't need an internet connection to watch it again. Just start up the BHO player and it's right there for you. Not all that terrible. Piracy protection no doubt. Cannot blame anyone for that.

You can, however, copy the files to your iPad or iPhone for offline viewing there.

That would make sense since they can run a mobile app version of the player I suppose.

Eric - in order to copy the files to iPad or iphone one needs to locate the actual files. Any idea where they default to?

If you follow these instructions it's easier

You just click the "Copy media to iOS device" in the player software and it opens up a window showing all the files.
