This is a really rich and pleasant sounding bridge. The highs were more or less unchanged from my previous bridge but the mids and lows took on a really rich timbre, with a 4th string that will make my liver quiver when I hit it right. The overall character is not quite as note separated as my previous bridge (likely more sustain) but nonetheless I really like the full complex tone of this bridge. There was some settling after a few days and I shimmed with a piece of paper under a leg to get the tone back.
Update: I've been playing this bridge for about 6 weeks now and it's my favorite (over Moon, Kat Eyz, Big Foot, Grover compensated) because the timbre from my banjo is so full and rich. You should at least try one because there's a good chance it'll become your favorite too.
