Snuffy Smith Compensated Maple/Ebony Five String Banjo Bridge Snuffy Smith Compensated Maple/Ebony Five String Banjo Bridge with weight detail
Superbly hand crafted by Mike Smith. Each bridge is weighed and the weight is written on the under side of the bridge.

The Snuffy Smith Compensated Maple/Ebony Five String Banjo Bridge differs from the norm in the following two ways.

  • Firstly the ebony top is notched at the 3rd (G) string to accommodate better better intonation of that particular string.
  • Secondly it is "Cantered" or sanded in such a way that that the feet of the bridge are ever so slightly nearer the centre of the banjo head or the "sweet spot" as it's known with out shortening the banjos scale length and in turn copromising intonation.
    This gives the bridge the appearance of it "leaning back" when it is in fact designed in such a way. The "New Generation" bridges feature the classic Snuffy Smith design and materials such as the standard hard rock maple frame and Ebony top.

    The ebony top is slightly chamfered on the treble side so as to eliminate the discomfort that occurs on non chamfered bridges when contact is made with the little finger of the picking hand.
