Bridges  Bart Veerman "Archie" bridge Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

I recently purchased a Bart Veerman Archie Bridge for my arch-top banjo.  The bridge was recommended to me by a fellow banjo picker who also owns an arch-top. I can't say enough about the difference in tone and volume that I am now enjoying.  Mr. Veerman has developed a thin bridge design that is highly compatible with the arch-top tone ring.  The Crowe spaced Archie bridge that I received was very professionally sculpted and finely finished making it not only functional but an attractive piece as well.  If you are currently tweaking your arch-top set up, you may find that an Archie will work well for you.  Happy picking,

Tommy Vee

I put the Archie on my Gold Tone MC150RP and couldn't stop smiling! If you are considering a bridge upgrade you will not be disappointed. I wish I could put into words how it sounds but you just have to hear it. Probably the best 30 bucks I ever spent.

I have tried the Veerman mystery, Enigma, and archies and they are all some of the best bridges ive played with, for tone, clarity, projection, and note separation. Bart is an awesome guy to deal with that goes above and beyond to make sure a person is happy .

I'm a believer in the idea that there is a perfect bridge out there for every banjo, and i believe that I have found that for my 1929 Style 4 mastertone. I had tried a snuffy smith, bigfoot, grover among other on this banjo and was never satisfied. The "archie" by Bart Veerman brought this banjo to its potential. What Clarity and Power! Just phenomenal and Bart was a very attentive and helpful person to buy something from.
