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.
