art, Just spent the last few hours tinkering with my new Archie bridge. I put it on a 70s GTR flathead (thick multi ply rim and likely a poor fitting pot metal tone ring). I tightened the head in the mean time. This banjo with new strings and your bridge (plus a lowered tail piece) has been completely transformed. Likely it had a poor setup prior but the Archie certainly allowed the subtleties of this banjo to come right out. The rest of the set up was a breeze. For this level of flathead it's amazing what it now produces. Oh and I appreciate the warning that came in the package. These bridges certainly crank up the volume. Best to exercise caution around those with sensitive ears. Best bridge by far I've ever used. Sincerely a customer for life, Charles
