Where Purchased: Bart Veerman (banjobridge.com)
Just purchased a 9/16 custom compensated ebony-topped mystery wood bridge with 46 mm (clawhammer) spacing from Bart Veerman and installed it on my 12" Enoch Tradesman (with Rickard Dobson-style tone ring).
It solved a third-string intonation problem and, to my ear and tastes, the banjo now sounds and feels great.
I measured for the compensation and specified the height and string spacing and asked for Mr. Veerman's advice on wood and weight. He was very helpful and his emails were prompt, polite, and informative.
Based on this experience, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from him again.
