Bridges: Tim Purcell Banjo Bridge

Where Purchased: Tim Purcell

Overall Comments

I have a very nice Nechville banjo that was very well set up but just shy of everything that it could deliver in the tone/sound department.  A friend of mine recommended that I try a Purcell bridge, which led me to send Tim an email on a late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. By 07:00 on Sunday morning, Tim had responded to my email with his recommendation based on the tone/sound I was after.  We exchanged a couple of more emails where TIm was very generous with his time in responding to all of my questions.  RIght out of the gate, I was very impressed with TIm's customer service even though this 'customer' had yet to order anything.

I ended up ordering a Wurlitzer organ wood bridge (double radius, compensated, Crowe spacing) and I'm very happy with the result.  The bridge is well designed/built and looks great.  My Nechville now has the clarity, strong 4th and up the neck power that I knew was there to be uncovered.

A big thanks to Tim for the fine bridge.  I highly recommend Tim for his great customer service and excellent product.
