Tiki Kings Ukulele Lesson,
Banjolele Bridge Placement
Alrighty. So You have a banjolele (also called a Banjo Uke) that has a bridge that is not in the right place, or is detached completely. Here is how you get it back in the proper spot:
1. First, measure from the nut to the 12th fret:
2. Place the bridge on the head, the same distance from the 12th fret:
This is your starting point. Now tune up, then fret at the 12th fret.
It should be the same note. (it will be a higher pitch, but the same note)
If it is flat, move the bridge slightly towards the neck. If it is sharp,
move the bridge slightly towards the tail piece:
I'm in the top 50!
After you move the bridge,
re-tune, and repeat the
process until the note is the
same at the 12th fret as it is
open (it will be a higher
pitch, but the same note)
