Bridges  Beaver King 5/8 Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

I requested a bridge that would add overtones and sustain to by super-dry RB4
and after a brief exchange of information, he custom-built not one, but two bridges to try. The first was so successful, that I purchased them both. Rarely have I found one small change to make such an improvement. I am very impressed with the product and with Dave.

Fantastic Bridges.I ordered a regular and a radius to try and was blown away!At first glance these bridges seem bulky with big feet but the composition of the old wood brings out a woody tone without sacrificing the bright tones at all.I would'nt thin them if I were you.I put the radius on a Huber Lancaster and the straight one on a Stelling Red Fox.We made sure the necks were tight and the other ends of the coordinater rods were only finger tight (super secret setup fact #007) and wa la .The Stelling really opened up.The Huber got a little woodier which it needed.Buy one ,experiment with your setup for a week or so and you'll see! The only detractor , If I had to find one would be the finish.I think it could be sanded smoother purly for asthetics but Dave does'nt charge that much for these things so I really should'nt rock the boat.
