About Steve Huber - Killer Tone
By Steve Huber. Taught by Steve Huber. For Banjo (5-String). Setup/maintenance. Acutab. Bluegrass & Country. Level: Beginning. DVD. Duration 80 minutes. Published by Acutab Publications. (99961DVD)
DVD format: Region 1 for use in the USA and Canada. Steve Huber takes us through a detailed description of the parts of the banjo and how they affect tone, volume and playability. Steve also covers some of the most critical components of banjo set up: proper head tension, tap tuning the head, optimal tone ring/rim fit, adjusting the coordinator rods, choosing a bridge, adjusting tailpiece more...height, bridge placement and truss rod adjustments. After describing and demonstrating many of these variables, Steve completely disassembles and reassembles a banjo on screen as he shows you how to install a new tone ring. A section on tone production as it relates to right hand picking technique closes the presentation. With careful attention to this video and a bit of trial and error, you can get the best possible tone from your banjo-and learn a lot about the instrument in the process. The DVD version includes 20 minutes of bonus footage.
