I asked this question on another post that may have run its course, so I'm going to start a new one. A previous post discussed rims and their affect on banjo sound. We read about the big difference that can result with a different bridge also. I've tried different bridges on my banjos and I don't hear a big difference, nothing worth mentioning at any rate. At around $30 a pop, it gets a little expensive to keep buying more bridges to try. Some on the hangout write of the big improvement they get with such and such bridge. Yet I don't hear that when I try different bridges on my banjos. Off the top of my head, I've got a Sullivan old growth factory floor bridge, KatEyz, Snuffy Smith, Emerson, let's see, an old Grover, a Bart Veerman mystery wood, a Scorpion, and a Nechville on my Nechville Classic. I've also got the original ones that came on banjos I've bought and replaced. But I have to honestly say I don't hear a big difference with any of them. A little, yes, but nothing dramatic or worth mentioning. They are all fine bridges, but none has given me the kind of change I hear mentioned by others here on the hangout. Anyone else who has experienced this? Is more being changed than the bridge, like head tension, head, etc when folks are putting on new bridges, or is it just the bridge alone resulting in these changes that are so noticeable for some?
