Thread Name: Banjo Talk - Long Neck and Head Tension
Subject: RE: Banjo Talk - Long Neck and Head Tension
I love the sound of this Vega (it has a tuba-phone ring, by the way) but I play mostly in G tuning, capoed at 3 or maybe a bit higher. Playing in F is where I run into the issues with too boomy a bass ... it's minor issue, and may just be my ear - but I'd like to get a tighter sounding tone from the instrument then I do. I may go ahead and just crank that plastic head down a bit more and see how that affects the sound.
This is a great banjo, and I ain't complainin'! Just looking to understand the instrument a bit more - after all, what does aguitar player know about banjos?
