Anyone use one of these? How does it compare to others for tone?

Mcpeake “lightning” bridge, I have 2. One on my Ode 42, and a spare. I really like them, one of my top 3 favorite bridges. It helps in delivering a clean, clear, crisp tone, with plenty of bass and volume to go along. Curtis doesn’t mess around with his bridges...he’s serious about them, has very specific guidelines for what types of maple and dimensions. Can’t go wrong with a “lightning” bridge.

I know it’s all in the setup, but here’s a clip with a lightning bridge.
