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.
