Overall Comments

Tim received some maple from Town and Country Bowling Alley in Flint Michigan. In case you don't know Flint is the only city tougher than Detroit, and that's saying a lot. Being a native Detroiter I had to have one of these Bridges. So I gave Tim a shout. I didn't really need a bridge for sound, I needed one for height. This bridge is going on a Ome Deluxe Jubilee, and right from Ome it sounded great. Believe it or not the first bridge Tim sent me, our puppy Frida bit the envelope and broke one of the legs off. Bummer! So I E-mailed Tim and he sent me another one. Tim is such a nice guy he sent me the second bridge  even though I accidentally stiffed him on the shipping charge. Well on the second bridge I made things right and Tim sent me another bridge. It sounds Great! The sound is fuller and it really chimes. You could'nt deal with a nicer guy than Tim and he has a nice selection of different woods, he'll make them whatever height you want, Crowe spacing, Radius top and bottom, and his workmanship is beautiful. O.K. I'm about out of wind. Thanks Tim!
