Thread Name: Banjo Setup and Sound Problems
Subject: RE: BS: Banjo Setup and Sound Problems
If it doesn't have a fairly substantial tone ring under the head, It'll not ever sound modern, certainly not with a skin head. If you really want a more modern sound, I think you'll have to switch to a plastic head of some sort, and perhaps a tension type tailpiece that allows you to increase the downpressure on the bridge.
