Bart Veerman Bridge

Posted by randyblair on Saturday, December 29, 2007

Yesterday I went to see our local bridgemaker extrordinaire Bart Veerman.  I really was not prepared for the incredible change in sound that my banjo was about to undergo.  Bart gave me about 8 or 9 bridges to try out and I finally settled on about 5 of them that would all be keepers (he gave me a wide variety of bridge styles).  Finally decided on one bridge.  My Rb-100 really came alive and the sound was just amazing...there is such a range of tone available now ....I can really dig in and have lots of low end growl and volume when I need it and the soft playing is clear and sweet.  This banjo really does ring clear.  Today it sounds even better!  I had a very nice bridge on it before but Bart's bridge not only looks great (work of art) it sounds fantastic!  I know that some people are getting to know about Bart and I am now one who has benifitted from his great bridges.  The one I chose is a Jatoba wood topped with Ebony 11/16", standard spacing.  Thanks Bart for your genuine hospitality and for making this old Rb-100 sound like a gem!  I can hardly keep from playing it.  See my photos for a picture.

Hey Randy!  Congrats on your new bridge! I remember when Mike Smith put a prowler bridge on my little Dean BW5, the improvement in sounds was almost unbelievable. That's really great.
