Yea they are fine and the best results I've gotten with a bridge change. Beyond the spruce bridges that have been a big surprize; the locust bridges are that good in a different way. Tim is sending me aother locust bridge in 11/16" for the Romero. Tim is great to work with and very knowledgeable. David E.

I might consider a Spruce or Locust bridge for my fretless banjo in the future when it comes.

I had John Balch at my house this past week to pick with his Bart Reiters. He was amazed at the volume and openness of the spurce bridges. When we slipped the locust bridge on his banjo it brought a little more focus. He went home with the locust bridge on his BR. Good deal for me since I got one if John's outstanding goat skin heads for the Romero.
As for spruce, I spoke wiht Jason Romero and he is tinkering with old Douglas Fir and feels the soft wood is working well on his banjos. Tim thinks the spruce is a little more dense than Douglas Fir; but either way, I think open back players will be amazed at how well these bridges do compared to traditonal maple tone wood. David E.
