I just bought the DrumDial Digital to check and adjust the head on my new Pisgah 12" Walnut Tubaphone Open-Back Banjo. The banjo arrived with a hook head tension average of 88.5 on the DrumDial's readout. A couple of hooks were at 89 and a couple at 88, and I adjusted those to the 88.5 average. The banjo sounds good at that tension but I sent a note to Pisgah owner, Patrick Heavner, regarding making the tension a bit higher and if he recommends doing so. I've yet to get his response. Next, I'll attack my Deering Sierra Resonator.
