It is a rare thing in this world that a product is comparable to products sold at 3 or 4 times it's price. This is one of those rare thngs.
Good articulation, note separation, does help with tuning, excellent on the treble, maybe less so on the bass end, good volume.
I own better bridges, but I have also paid far more for lesser bridges than these. Overall, I prefer this bridge to the similar products by either Grover or Hatfield.
I doubt anyone is going to put these on super-high end banjos, but on a beginner or intermediate banjo these are probably a very inexpensive and nice upgrade. Highly recommended.
