Bridges: Renan Banjos bridge

Submitted by dustyelmer on 1/3/2017

Where Purchased: From Renan Banjos

Overall Comments

I ordered a single foot, straight bridge from Tyler Burke, owner/operator of Renan Banjos and have been very pleased with the improvements in the tone of my Bart Reiter Special. The bridge is hard maple with a thin ebony cap and really focused and sharpened the tone of my banjo. Tyler was professional and very easy to do business with, and the bridge arrived a few days after I placed the order. I highly recommend Renan Banjos and Tyler Burke.

Sound

Sounds great. Despite being an A-scale, it sounds really good with heavy nylguts tuned to dGDF#A.

Sound Rating: 9

Setup

Action is good.

Setup Rating: 9

Appearance

The maple neck is pretty, and the oak rim is nicely grained. I really like the tailpiece as well. Looks like it ought to.

Appearance Rating: 9

Reliability

I can't see what could possibly break on this banjo. It's very solid.

Reliability Rating: 9

Customer Service

Not sure about a warranty, but Eric and Donna were both very nice and responded promptly to all the emails I sent. I'd highly recommend them.

The pegs are solid and work well. Everything is handmade and very solid. No complaints at all.

Overall Comments

Best $200 I've ever spent. You can't beat this banjo for twice the price. It's a joy to play.
