Bridges  100 year old barnwood minstrel bridge Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

Where Purchased: Direct from Don New

Overall Comments

This bridge was made by Don New, who is a superb craftsman, probably best-known for his dam spillway bridges. The bridge I just purchased however is a two-footed minstrel bridge. I love the sound of this bridge and the way it brings out the character of an old banjo. Don does great work on all his models and is very helpful in making sure you get exactly the bridge you need. Highly recommended.

 I purchased the heavy bridge for placement on my Prust tackhead.

I also put on a new set of Aquila Classic Nylgut with the red 4th string. Once the strings were stretched in and settle, it really brought the bass and treble out of the 13" pot.

I play in several tunings.

Well worth every nickle I paid for it.

Bridge is great on my Prust tackhead. Really adds thump, and volume.

Bought this bridge for my 70's tenor banjo. Got rid of most of the overtones and the sympathetic vibrations. Banjo now plays nicely up and down the fretboard. Made this inexpensive banjo into a real player. Don has great communication - responds quickly to queries - and builds a bridge to meet your needs at a reasonable price.
