Bridges  Tim Purcell Piano Bridge Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

These are very finely crafted bridges. The old piano wood delivers a wonderful balance of clarity, separation and decay. For me, it added the final element I was looking to dial into on my banjo, "presence". My mahogany KK-3 had really come into it's own after I had replaced the stock ring with an JLS#4. However it just needed that final tweak. Working with Tim couldn't have been any easier. I communicated with Tim over a couple of email's about my banjo, setup info, preferences and what I was looking to achieve. A short spell later, a well packed mailer showed up with my bridges. I've had equally wonderful results with the red maple bridges he made for me as well.

I bought 1928 TB3 conversion back in April, 2010 and it had a Frank Neat bridge on it. I really liked the tone I was getting with that bridge, but being the "tinkeraholic" that I am, I tried 6 or 8 other top name bridges that I had in my collection, but always went back to the Frank Neat as the best. In August, 2012, I decided I wanted to try something else, so I ordered and received one of Tim Purcell's "Old Piano Wood" bridges.

After receiving the bridge from Tim and after switching back and forth between Tim's bridge and the Frank Neat a few times, I liked Tim's bridge better. It gives the banjo a little "drier", clearer tone with volume to spare. I would highly recommend Tim's bridges.

I wanted to try a different bridge on my Mastertone so I contacted Tim and chose a Piano Bridge. I was amazed at the volume and clarity in this bridge, I would definately buy another one from him. The craftsmanship is over the top professional, very nice work. He is also very easy to deal with and a nice guy as well.
