No More Tears

After spending a couple years learning on a 60 year-old Kay starter banjo (which stays perfectly in tune), I decided it was time to upgrade, and bought online a new Deering Goodtime Americana openback. Besides it having factory-caused fret problems that had to be resolved in the guitar shop, I could not get this brand-new banjo to sound right. The middle string was extremely sharp when fretted, even at the 2nd fret. I was beginning to regret wasting my money on this beautiful but dissonant banjo, until a little research revealed this is a common problem that can be alleviated with a compensated bridge. I bought this bridge, installed it, and wow, does it make a difference! I can actually play songs without wanting to cry. I hope other people experiencing this same problem make the same discovery. I wish my banjo books had mentioned it.

Banjo pickers understand the challenges of trying to maintain accurate tuning and this intonation issues caused by differing string lengths from nut to tailpiece. I have a beautiful banjo but the 3rd string drove me crazy and the higher up the neck the worse it got. I checked out the company who made my banjo and they carry a compensated bridge. $25 I ordered and received my StewMac bridge, got it quickly and it made all the difference. My Banjo no longer offends my ear. :)

Banjo Bridge is great!

I purchased this bridge to replace a missing one on a friend's banjo that I am doing a restoration on. It is a great alternative to a straight bridge, and gives better intonation to the banjo.
