I bought an older model Goodtimes Special a month ago. I've been playing it non-stop since then, having fallen totally in love with the banjo, after a fifteen-year break caused by selling my old Vega. SOOOO good to be back! I treated myself to a new bridge and chose to contact Steve Davis, after reading the reviews here. I told him I like melodic playing and wanted something to make for a full, rich sound. Steve suggested a roasted maple bridge with an ebony top, and a weight of around 2.25 grams. That bridge came today, and the improvement in sound is astonishing. Clean, rich, and beautiful, with the high notes ringing like bells. I am blown away by what a difference a bridge can make, and would like the thank Steve for this huge improvement in my sound.

Yeah, they're nice aren't they!?! I got when when I switched my open back from steel to nylon. The new bridge really sweetened it up. Looks spiffy too.

I've bought a number of bridges from Steve.
I've had great results from each of them.
