Discuss the Banjo lesson: Banjo Setup with Steve Huber- Coordinator Rod Adjustment

Learn to coordinate your coordinator rods!

What if you have a less expensive model that has a single rod that has an adjuster in the middle?

Howdy @jlpayne722! Here’s what @Jake said in response!
It really depends on the type of coordinator rod. Generally speaking, a good two rod setup is much more stable. Some of the single rod systems are good too though, but if it’s a turnbuckle style rod they’re not nearly as good. Some guys go so far as to say that two rods even sound better.

Good to know, When I get better and plan on upgrading my banjo, I’ll keep that in mind. Thanks.
