Bridges  Snuffy Smith New Generation Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

Submitted by banjo1971 (see all reviews from this person) on 2/8/2018

Where Purchased: KatEyz Banjo Bridges

Overall Comments

I recently ordered some bridges from Mike Smith at KatEyz Banjo Bridges.  I have ordered a new neck with a radius, so I wanted to buy a bridge with a radius.  I was interested in the Snuffy Smith New Generation, Crowe spacing, .656" tall, radius 16"..  He sent two bridges in the mail.  .  I tried each bridge on the banjo.  I felt like I needed a heavier, thicker bridge for my ear.  He sent two more out, weighing 2.48g approximately.  These last bridges rock!  They give a fat tone and kill some of the mid overtones.  Great bridges and workmanship!  He is fine with me returning the first two bridges whenever I see him  next.

Just want to say that Mike Smith is doing a wonderful job with the production of the New Generation Snuffy Smith bridges.  They produce great tone, and are very well made.  I have had at least 5 of them and I have been pleased with all of 'em.  I told him what I wanted in a bridge and he made it happen.  They are every bet as good as the original SS bridges, maybe better.  Give one a try if you have not already!
