Product Details

Buying an off the shelf bridge for a steel strung banjo can be an absolute nightmare. If you play on steel strings you want a nice clean crisp ring. Factory made bridges with two and three feet are far too thick and need a great deal of work done to them before you can obtain even a half decent tone. Some players spend hours sanding their bridge in order to get rid of all the unnecessary wood which only damps the banjo’s true tone. Even when sanded down you are often left with unseasoned maple containing undetectable moisture which again ruins the tone. No matter how good your instrument may be, without the right bridge you are fighting a losing battle.

5 string bridge - Distance from 1st to 5th string is 1 11/16"
4 string bridge - Distance from 1st to 4th string is 1 7/16"
