"Friction tuners on a zither banjo? I have never seen that before. Please post pictures of the banjo. That repair-work is called "buying-a-new-banjo". Lots of people on here do it all the time! :-)"

"No, that doesn't sound right to me. Specially if it is very noticable. I'm not an expert though. I've only put on some 10 skins or so. I'm a bit surprised about that, though. I've only ordered a skin once from Clifford Essex…"
