Bridges  Snuffy Smith "2 Generation" Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

Like everyone else these new Snuffy Smith Bridges are top notch.  I put one on my custom Rigel banjo and it made quite a difference.  I had a Hatfield bridge on that banjo and it was a little weak on the base and sounded thin no matter how I set it up.  I tried a S/S  bridge and its got a little growl now, which is very cool.  Th ebase response is better than before.   I didn't change any of the set up so I know it was the bridge.  I've had it for over a month and the banjo still has that growl so I'm sure it was the different bridge that caused it.  Its defiantly a keeper.

You won't go wrong getting one of these new Snuffy Smith bridges.  I have a RK36 that I may just have to get one of these bridges for.  We'll see.

I bought 2 bridges and they both are excellent. I have owned 4-5 original Snuffy Smith Bridges over the years and there is no difference in sound. Great workmanship. Make sure you get the right weight for the sound your wanting. I had to get a 2.09 gram and a 2.2 gram for my 2 banjos because all banjos are not the same..

Just tried out my new Snuffy Smith 2 Generation bridge on my 03' Stelling Master's Cross, I had an original S/S on it & to tell you the truth I don't know which one I like the most. I don't think there's a dimes worth of difference between the 2 bridges in tone & by looking at them , you definitely can't tell the difference. Strictly top shelf craftsmanship! Great job Mike!!!
