In this week’s Talk Banjo episode I’m answering another listener’s question, this time about truss rod adjustment:

“What’s the best way to adjust a truss rod?” 

I’m going to split this topic into 2 parts. First we’re going to look at how you would go about making adjustments, and then, in another episode I’ll look at when you would need to adjust your banjo neck in this way.

Click on the audio player or on the link below to listen to this week’s episode and discover:

  • What is an adjustable truss rod? 
  • What are the 2 main styles of truss rod? 
  • What are truss rods used for? 
  • How are they used to adjust the neck? 
  • What is the best way to approach adjusting the neck? 

Hope this is helpful, any questions, let me know in the comment box and if there’s something you’d like me to cover in the future just let me know.
