Replogle Spider Bridge

About This Item

Mike Replogle's highly refined cast aluminum spiders offer a choice of traditional alloy, or a modern alloy for a brighter sound. Each leg of the spider is hand-adjusted and leveled so your resonator guitar will sound its best.

Mike arches the legs by hand on each Replogle spider and levels the bottoms of the feet. This helps optimize contact on the guitar's resonator cone, to bring out the best tone and volume. "No small task, and a great benefit not found on other spiders," says Mike.

Each spider is 9-1/4" diameter, with 1/8"-wide saddle slot, drilled for cone tension screw (not included). Made in USA, and available in two models.

Original alloy spider: Traditional 1930s-style aluminum alloy makes this bridge flexible enough to deliver classic resonance and musical tone. This is the legendary #14 spider sound that hearkens back to the great pre-war resonator guitars.

Modern alloy spider: Small additional amounts of chromium, nickel and titanium increase the strength of the alloy for slightly more rigidity. This gives the bridge more ring and projection, ideal for players seeking a modern brighter tone.

Amazing Spider Bridge

I purchased this spider bridge to use in a custom resophonic guitar that I was building . I have always used # 14 spiders but from a different supplier . I was building a custom reso for a customer and I had heard about the new Replogle Spider for the modern sound . I thought that I would give it a try to see what I thought of it . All I can say is that this will be my number one choice of spider bridge from now on . Also the fact that the legs were already sanded flat save time for me and that helps out a lot, and would make a big difference for the DYI person who may not even know that this process is so important . Great job Replogle

Half the weight twice the sound in my old Rouge. This and a Beard cone made my old cheap Dobro sound GREAT.
