Bridges  Spillway Dam Bridges Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

Recently bought a Spillway bridge from Don New.  It's old maple with a rosewood top in standard 5 string spacing - 5/8" tall.  I put it on my 1962 Vega Seeger and WOW!! - what a difference in volume and tone from the compensated Grover maple and ebony bridge I've been using.  I am really pleased with the bridge.  It not only sounds great but is a pleasure to look at and adds to my banjo's appearance.

Also, Don is a real craftsman and gentleman who prices his bridges fairly and is a pleasure to work with.  I highly recommend Don and his bridges to anyone.
