Bridges: Bart Veerman Clawhammer Bridge

Submitted by Gerontion on 2/24/2018

Where Purchased: Directly from Bart (

Overall Comments

I own a Recording King OT Madison with a scoop that I like very much but felt could be tickled to have a little better tone. The stock bridge seemed to be imparting a very nasal and bright tone, even over the scoop.

That is why I went searching for heavy bridges with an added wider string spacing for easier drop-thumbing and found Bart's page. Reading all over the web quickly confirmed that these were supposed to be really good, so I ordered one with 5/8 height, 46 mm string spacing, untopped as recommended by Bart for clawhammer, and in B (heavy) weight for added dark tone.

It arrived from Canada to Germany within 4 days (!).

I couldn't be happier with the improvement... The notes pop, my banjo has a nice plunky dark tone with good sustain and has a nice deep woody sound. I love it. These are worth every penny. 

Thanks Bart!
