Bridges  Bart Veeerman 2 Foot Tenor Banj Bridge Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

(adapted to a review I posted on Bart's Facebook page)

 I recently ordered a Bart bridge for a humble GoldTone Cripple Creek Irish Tenor banjo. I can't afford to upgrade to a better banjo, and truthfully can't see spending that much money even if I could. However, I felt that the banjo's tone and volume could use a bit of a tweak, so after many recommendations I opted for Bart's bridge. I corresponded with Bart ahead of time, gave him the full specs of the banjo and went with his recommendation. He asked for full information on my banjo including string gauges, bridge height, string spacing, and customized the bridge accordingly.
Frankly, I was skeptical as to how much a mere bridge could affect the performance of this inexpensive but boy, was I wrong! It's like a whole new banjo. One thing I was looking for was a brighter tone, especially on the lower strings, and the bridge delivered. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that I'm exceedingly happy and would recommend this bridge to any tenor banjo player. For 25 bucks you can't go wrong!

An absolute 10! The bridge is a beautiful piece of work, and my Century old Vega has never sounded as good; projection, claity, intonation, timbre,
and no floppy 4'th string!

Beyond that, Bart is an amazing guy, a consumate professional, and a pleasure to work with.
