Have you seen this? setup  John Boulding has some videos tips and tricks

I'm thinking that you need to give future posters some idea of the issue or issues you are having?  Banjo not staying in tune? Buzzing when fretting? Not in tune up the neck (intonation problems)? Action too high (strings too high off the fretboard) or too low? How to set the tailpiece angle to get the best tone?
