Bridges: Bart Veerman "Archie" bridge

I recently purchased a Bart Veerman Archie Bridge for my arch-top banjo.  The bridge was recommended to me by a fellow banjo picker who also owns an arch-top. I can't say enough about the difference in tone and volume that I am now enjoying.  Mr. Veerman has developed a thin bridge design that is highly compatible with the arch-top tone ring.  The Crowe spaced Archie bridge that I received was very professionally sculpted and finely finished making it not only functional but an attractive piece as well.  If you are currently tweaking your arch-top set up, you may find that an Archie will work well for you.  Happy picking,

Tommy Vee

Bill Evans: In Good Comp[any

Overall Comments

Bill Evans' most recent CD entitled "In Good Company" and it is just that. He is in good company with the group of fine musicians that he assembled for this project. I found the song selections as well as the arrangements to be outstanding. There is a bit of something for a wide range of musical tastes. Beatles fans (myself included) will thoroughly enjoy the arrangements of the Beatles classics, Mother Nature's Son, You've Got to Hide Your Love Away, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds and A Hard Day's Night. And the enthusiasts of traditional music will enjoy other selections on the CD, I'm especially partial to Big Chief Sonny.

Treat yourself to a great CD, you will undoubtedly appreciate the fine, crisp instrument work and the tasteful vocals. Check out Bill's website, if you would like to purchase a copy.
