I have a rather odd playing style, and tend to let my inner forearm rest on the top edge of my ukes while strumming. That works fine on standard ukes, but when I bought this banjolele, I was finding the tension rods were cutting into my arm.
This wouldnt be a problem with a conventional strum, so I am not having a dig at the Ozark! Did need sorting though.
Thanks to Andybanjo at the Banjo Workshop, I sourced a used arm rest from an 8" head banjo.
Arrived today, but sadly the holes dont quite line up with my tension rods - I therefore have it clamped somewhat unconventionally as you will see. When I say unconventional, I mean the tensioners are now angled inwards slightly, not perpendicular to the head. Maybe that isnt unconventional - i dont know!
No matter - the banjolele is now comfortable!!
