I was very fortunate to have Silvio send me a bridge in the mail. He made no promises or sales pitches, just a simple "try it out and see what you think". Wow...what a fantastic bridge! Bite, bark, volume, note seperation...it has it all! It sounds fantastic on my Deering Calico and it helped bring my Goldstar GF85 to life! A great product from a great guy. I highly recommended it!

I was a bit skeptical as to wether another bridge would actually make much difference but what a difference it did make!
Brilliant.

I had to change the bridge of my Recording King RK 80 and Silvio was in my town for a concert. Now I have the new Scorpion bridge on the banjo.
The sound is more rich and the notes are more separate.A very nice job.

I had a Sosebee submerged maple bridge on my `29 RB4, and with a Blaylock conversion ring it sounded very thin; that is, all I heard was the fundamental with almost no supporting harmonic overtones. I decided to try a standard Scorpion. A visual comparison reveals that the Scorpion has about twice the amount of ebony. After the installation, there was almost no tonal difference, but during the next three days and 13+/- hours of picking, the sound became more opulent and complex, but still very dry with strong note separation. No bridge is perfect for all banjos, but this one seems to have done what I had hoped for and is a keeper.
