Fit my banjo perfectly

By

Verified Buyer


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

What's the difference?

By

Verified Buyer


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

Verified Buyer


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.

Reliable Bridges

By

Verified Buyer


I've purchased over 200 of these in varied sizes. Sizes are quite consistent, quality is good, bottoms are almost always sanded to a usable angle. We use them in our light weight practice/travel banjo and banjo kits.

Nice bridges and a great price

By

Verified Buyer


I was able to order 5 or 6 bridges for the price of one. The maple was very nice on all of them. The string spacing was good and shipping was very fast !

5-string bridges

The last group of bridges were sanded so that they will not stand vertically. By the time I re-sanded the bottom to correct this, it lost about 1/16" off the height. So, a 9/16" bridge was only a 5/8". Luckily, I had some 3/4" bridges to use. I hope that in the future, that they are made to be vertical and quality inspected.

These are great bridges, I only wish you had the ones with the bone in them.I'll get one later.

You know the old saying, Bone For Tone.
