Bridges

Add some bite to your banjo! Experienced players know the difference a quality bridge can make. Tweak your banjo to deliver the best sound possible. Choose from dry to fruity depending on your taste. (There really aren't enough words to describe sound!)


PURPLE HEART BRIDGES

Sturdy, purple-heart with cocobolo top. Very hard wood. Transmits plenty of volume clearly and cleanly without adding its own coloration.


Available in 5/8" or 11/16". Plenty of 'meat in the feet' for tweaking action.


$30 each.

SCORPION BRIDGE - 5/8" Standard Spacing only.

Made in Italy, not always available in either USA or AUS.


Aged European maple with ebony top. These bridges are especially suited to give bluegrass banjos a crisp, clean sound with slightly less 'midrange grittiness' than Snuffy Smiths. If 'pure' sound with enhanced 'edge' to all registers is what you're seeking to reflect from your banjo, these bridges will deliver, brilliantly!

$65.00 AUD.


Backup Banjo 1

Snuffy Smith Bridge

Dry sounding bridge with lots of footprint; this bridge is associated with pre-war Gibson sound. Fattens up mid-range and bass and adds 'clack'. (Translation: shortens the sustain.)

Available in 1/2", 5/8" and 9/16"
