Would use as a replacement bridge on my 5 string banjo hoping to cut down an irritating buzz on one of the strings. Unfortunately it made the problem worse so would not recommend product. Product itself seemed to be satisfactorily made.

Restoration project.
My first banjo and, as a guitarist, string height came as a surprise! This lower bridge has improved things considerably, from my point of view at least.

OK. I was trying out this 1/2 inch bridge as an experiment. In the event, the 5/8 bridge has a better sound.

just the job. Having just bought a 2nd hand home made banjo, the bridge was too high, and this fixed it for silly money. Highly recommended

A simple one-for-one replacement for my old (worn out) bridge. Together with new strings, this bridge has revived the crispness to the sound of my old banjo.
