Just put a Grover 11/32 bridge on my old Harmony long neck. What a difference in tone! I used the instructions on the Zepp Country Music website. It was quite easy. Now my banjo has a much fuller tone. Interestingly I had to angle the bridge back toward the bass. Also, it's much closer to the tail piece than the original (somebody had marked it before).
The main reason I changed was to get a higher action. I like it better already. Yippee! hopefully I'll play better now (hee hee). Back to practicing while the wife and kids are away...

Stop that!! Next thing you know you'll want a new pot...then a new head...then a new neck...then a new ??? and pretty soon you won't even recognize your banjo.
Just kidding!! I just could help myself. It's interesting what a new bridge can do. I've changed a few myself that resulted in big changes in the sound...and a few that only made subtle changes.
Glad you're happy with your "new" banjo!
