Bridges  Purcell Old Flooring Bridge Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

Overall Comments

I was a little apprehensive about trying a different bridge on my Stelling Crusader because I was very happy with my roasted one. Well......I was pleasantly surprised.  Tim's "Old Flooring" bridge really brought a beautiful timbre in my banjo. It reminded me of espresso, bold dark, resonant, yet with clarity and the right "ghosts" (my term) up the neck. If you are a little frustrated with overtones and brightness, this may be the way to go. Give it some time, I installed mine, played for a few minutes and went to bed. The next day, BAM! it hit me as a totally different banjo. I lack the proper vocabulary to describe the tone, but I liked it. Worked really well in D tuning as well. If you are itching to try something different, this bridge may be the new voicing you are looking for. Definitely worth a try.
