Bridges  Sullivan Old Growth Bridge 11/16" Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

Where Purchased: First quality music

Overall Comments

Excellent bridge.  Found I preferred this one over some of the much higher priced bridges I have. The tone to my ear is brighter than normal. But not harsh. Very bell like on both banjos I've used them on. Very well built. An the price is beyond reasonable. Great product if you are looking to brighten up your tone. Very clear.

Overall Comments

Sullivan makes top notch stuff and I'm a fan of most everything old so couldn't wait to try this old growth factory floor bridge (maple/ebony, uncompensated) on my 1929 Granada archtop and on my RK85. If you want a good, rich tone, this is a good one. However, I like a bright, biting sound with clear, deep tones and this one is a bit muted for my taste. Workmanship is flawless, but I went back to Snuffy Smith.

Overall Rating: 6
