Where should a banjo bridge be placed?
In respect to this, how high should the action be on a banjo?
Normal string height, or action, is about 1/8″ above the 12th fret and 9/64″ above the 22nd fret as measured from the top of each fret to the center of the strings.
One may also ask, what are the parts of a banjo called? The pot assembly part of the construction of the banjo has the following components:
- Banjo rim. The wood rim is the main part of the pot.
- Co-ordinator rods. These steel rods keep the rim stable.
- Tone ring.
- Banjo head.
- Banjo bridge.
- Tension hoop.
- Hooks and nuts.
Keeping this in view, how far should the bridge be from the 12th fret?
Should be 25 1/2" scale. That means 12 3/4" from nut to 12th fret, and 12 3/4" from 12th fret to middle of bridge.
