Hi All.

I am trying to find out who made this Bridge.

Thanks for any information on it.

I believe it is a Wadsworth bridge.

Second this. Then "W" gives it away. Dave makes great bridges that work for many banjos 



I myself have an 11/16 from Silvio Ferreti and that works for me well but I'd love to try a Wadsworth and see what sort of change it brings. And a Snuffy. And a Huber lol the list goes on......



Always fun to experiment. That's, to me at least, the best part of banjos - there are soooooo many interchangeable parts and makers and adjustments, it's the ultimate tinkering instrument for someone who enjoys that stuff. Like me.



I used to make and repair violins and cellos and those types of instruments so its always fun to see what works and what doesn't. Experimenting, to me, is the key to success and learning the ins and outs of whatever instrument you're working on. Just my opinion I'm sure others may differ.

Thanks for the info Alvin, and Carter, and the link to the thread on David's bridges. Everything I read on the thread about his bridges are right on, and the reason I wanted to know who made the bridge. It does have a wonderful sound, and beautifully made. He is a true craftsman.
