Banjo Upgrade

Posted by Johnboy109 on Saturday, October 18, 2008

I spent the afternoon upgrading my banjo. Stewart-McDonald has a great catalogue of supplies.(stewmac.com)A 5th string capo and new tuners. Had to drill out the head to get the tuners to fit. But now it tunes easier now.My next addition will be a clear head for a brighter tone, and a compensated bridge.

John, I have taken to making my own moon bridges. Can't say enough good things about it. Great sound and very stable on the head. I just down loaded a picture of a moon bridge on line and used it as a pattern to get the right curve. Seems to compensate perfectly. The one thing I like best about making my own is that I can customize the spacing for my big hands. B-
