** Introducing the Banjo Bolster! **

The Banjo Bolster is a revolutionary, patent pending device that enhances any banjo’s tone by transparently removing undesirable overtones, while preserving the full power and frequency response of the instrument.

Easily adjust the amount of overtone removal by how the Banjo Bolster is positioned inside the banjo pot, thus providing a wide range of control and customization over your desired tone.

The Banjo Bolster can be quickly inserted, adjusted or removed and does not require any alteration to the instrument.

Designed to be discreet and not draw attention to itself, its warm brown color and sound wave pattern let the Banjo Bolster recede into the shadows, ensuring that attention remains on you and your banjo – where it should be!

** Don't Stuff It, Bolster It! **

Conventional stuffing methods focus on dampening the head’s vibrations in an effort to reduce unwanted overtones. Foam rubber, socks, rolled-up towels and other items are placed between the dowel stick and the underside of the banjo head.

Unfortunately, these methods have the unwanted side effect of reducing both the banjo’s volume and frequency response, often resulting in an overly compressed and flattened sound.

** Configuring the Banjo Bolster **

The flexibility of the Banjo Bolster enables it to be positioned so that all, none, or some of its length contacts the banjo head. The least amount of overtone removal is achieved when there is no contact with the head, and for many banjos this is the perfect configuration.

In contrast, when the entire length of the Banjo Bolster contacts the banjo head, maximum overtone removal is achieved.

This level of adjustability allows you, the banjo player, to attain your own unique tone and maximize the sonic potential of your banjo.

Once properly positioned, you can leave the Banjo Bolster inside your banjo for as long as desired. Its carefully crafted construction ensures that it gently holds its position until manually readjusted or removed and will not scratch or damage your banjo in any way.

** Special Benefits for Banjos with Hide Heads **

The adjustability of the Banjo Bolster will be of particular significance if you perform in outdoor venues, especially if your banjo has a hide head. A quick adjustment will make it possible to increase or decrease overtone removal, allowing you to efficiently adapt to your changing playing environment while maintaining optimum tone.

** Custom Made to Fit Your Banjo **

Every Banjo Bolster is custom made to fit your banjo perfectly! All we need is your banjo’s “measured length” and dowel stick type.

Determining your banjo’s measured length is quick and easy. Simply measure the length of your dowel stick or coordinator rod(s). Please see the How to Measure Your Banjo page for helpful instructions.
