I often tell people that one of the quickest and easiest ways to improve the sound of your banjo, is to upgrade the existing bridge to a quality bridge. The Snuffy Smith design sets the standard for what that should be, and is the very bridge we offer as an upgrade on banjos we sell. Customers can usually tell right away that they have gained increased volume, tone, balance, depth, etc...That says a lot!
Select the one which is right for you. They come in a variety of heights (tallness) and spacings (distance between the strings.) 5/8" is standard, .656" is just a little taller, and 11/16" is a little taller yet. Crowe Spacing is just a hair wider string spacing, and a radiused top means it's slightly curved to match a radiused fretboard.
