David's zebra-wood / katalox bridge (2.46 gm / .687 tall / Crowe spacing) made a marked improvement in the sound of my banjo (Cox rim, Sullivan First Quality archtop tone ring, Gibson RB 250 neck & resonator)
The individual clarity of each note was noticeably increased from open string up to the 22nd fret.
The guys I jam with even asked if I had new strings or new finger-picks, etc.. so they heard a difference also. It wasn't just my ears !!
Well made, good looking, traditional styled bridge with the weight, height, and spacing written on the bottom of the feet. I like little details such as that.
Also, David is an excellent person to deal with!
