"Around 90-91" seems quite popular, but it really depends.

1. what you like for sound is most important
2. set up set up set up overrides most anything

Earl never used a drumdial.

Don't be afraid to experiment. Bela Fleck for instance is known for using quite a slack head, tuned to a note closer to F.

Anywhere between 89 to over 91, depending on what sound you want and how you set up your banjo. G# to A# very roughly speaking,
