Talk Banjo: Why Do Banjos Use Planetary Tuners?
Welcome to this week’s episode of Talk Banjo.
This time I’m answering a question I received which was:
“Why do some entry-level banjos use guitar tuners, but the higher end banjos are fitted with planetary tuners. And why are they called planetary tuners?”
Don’t forget, if you have a banjo question you’d like me to answer, submit it over in the comments on the Talk Banjo page.
Below are some photos of a planetary and guitar tuner:
