I also build the Minstrel Style Banjo Bridge out of 100 Year Old Barn Wood for $17.50, for those that want a 2 foot bridge for Old Time Banjos. I had several customers wanting me to build them a bridge for their old banjos, and came up with 2 different designs to choose from. I can also cut the string slots for Nylgut strings if wanted.
I was really surprised at how good the sound was from this design, and sounds good playing either 3 finger style, or clawhammer. You can include the Minstrel bridges in a Combo Pack, or Super Combo Pack.

Finally, and thanks for staying with me, I also build the Big Foot Banjo Bridge, which is a very unique design that xnavyguy came up from an idea of fellow hangoutmember beegee, that is a very Powerfull Banjo Bridge. It's the only banjo bridge I have seen that brings out more bass, and treble. Most of the bridges I've seen, or built will have a better low end, but sacrifice some on the other end, or vise versa, but the Big Foot brings it all out.

They are made with Maple Legs, and 100 Year Old Barn Wood Cross Bar, and I can also make them out of all Old Barn Wood, both Cross Bar, and Legs, if you want one built like that.
I chage a little more to build them, $25 + $5.40 s/h, $18.50 s/h Overseas, as it takes a lot more work to build them, but if you want the most powerfull bridge, this is it.
Recently I started making some more Big Foot Bridges with different woods and wood combinations as to the legs and crossbar. You can choose the Crossbar from 100 Year Old Barnwood, Maple, and Cedar, you choose, and the legs can be made out of the same woods in any combination you would like. Since I have started making bridges out of Cedar with Ebony Caps, I think they have the best sound of any bridge that I now make. I can make them in the Spillway Dam Style, as well as the Big Foot Bridge. They have a 4th String sound that booms.

The Spillway Dam Banjo Bridge design was developed by a couple of members of the Banjohangout, xnavyguy, and rollplayer.

After a lot of expermental designs, and testing, this design was one of the best they came up with.

They have given me their permission to build, and sell their design, which I am grateful for.

The design of the Spillway Dam Banjo Bridge allows the string vibrations to go straight down to the banjo head, from each strings. The design of this bridge also prevents sagging, which is common on a lot of traditional bridge designs. I have sold several bridges to Banjohangout Members, with great success. Most customers say they love the tone, increased volume, and note separation, the bridge supplies. They seem to work really well on the cheaper, entry level banjos, but also improve the performance of the most expensive banjos.

This is for one, 4 or 5 String Bridge, that I will build to your size, from 1/2" to 3/4", and to your string spacing specifications Standard spacing 42mm, or Crowe spacing 44mm, or for 3 if you choose the Combo Pack
