Very happy!

I recently purchased a custom handmade 1800s tack head banjo with 3 bridges...all were too high! I purchased these short height bridges from Stew-Mac and found them to be of excellent quality and perfect for my new period banjo!

WHY PAY MORE? FOR BOUTIQUE BANJO BRIDGES

By
(Customer's Reviews)


These bridges are great! I hae used all the big name 40 dollars bridges for years but not anymore these are all you need they sound great you can order 15 of these for the price of one of the other boutique bridges. These Stew Mac bridges are awesome and my choice from now on.

Everything was just the right size for my particular banjo. I can't see why anyone would pay more!

What's the difference?

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I still can't tell much difference between a $ 4 bridge and a $ 40 bridge other than the price. Both are maple topped with ebony, I will save my money for things there actually is a difference in, thanks!

Five string bridge

By
(Customer's Reviews)


In years past I have favored the bridges with bone inserts in the tops but I find this bridge has a clearer tone on both of my banjos. Since neither of my banjos has a Mastertone style tone ring like my old ones did that may be the reason for the difference. Bridges are like strings, not all have the same results on different instruments. You have to experiment to see what works best.I plan to continue using these bridges on my new banjos that I build.
