Bridges: Scorpion

I recently tried Scorpion Bridges on my flathead 3 and flathead 12. I just want to say that Silvio is making the very best bridges available today.

The .656" on my style 3 made the banjo louder and dryer than another well known bridge that was very good. It also improved the separation of notes.

And the 5/8" bridge I put on my style 12 made a remarkable difference. If ever there was a perfect bridge for a specific banjo, this is it! Thanks, Silvio!!

Straps: Sully's Straps

Overall Comments

I recently purchased a strap from Sully's Straps (http://www.sullysstraps.com/). I chose a "vintage" model to go with my old banjo. It is a terrific strap with beautiful old leather and excellent workmanship. In addition, Sully is great person with whom to do business. He is a banjo player himself in addition to being a craftsman. I highly recommend his straps.

Very well made mute that is easy to put on and remove. The sound is a little quieter than I expected, but I am very pleased with the tone it projects. I definitely recommend.

Robin Smith

Overall Comments

Robin recently made a new 5-string conversion neck for my '33 PB-3. The workmanship is fantastic. The feel, fit and looks are great. He used a "semi-speed neck" that is stained yet has the feel of an older neck. The tone is already superb. I can only imagine how nice it will be after it has some time to settle in. Lastly, Robin's service is A+. He is such a nice person and is willing to customize to your needs.
