What an Upgrade!
I have a cheaper banjo, but this bridge has really improved its tone! Bright, but still has a nice deep ring to it! Still don’t sound like Scruggs, but oh well.

Snuffy Smith Crowe spaced 5 string banjo bridge (with compensation)
I've been using Snuffy Smith Crowe spaced bridges on my 5 string banjos for more than 15 years now. I never regretted it : this kind of bridge is very well made; add rich tone and power to the instrument (I play on a 1994 Gibson RB-250 and a 2013 Deering Calico) and the playability is fantastic.The new generation of bridges - I just received this week - have a 'plus' with the compensation on the 3rd string. Every banjo picker will admit we have normally a very serious problem with this damn old 3rd string ! No way to get the exact pitch after the 4th fret ! The style 2 Snuffy Smith bridges resolve it. I have tried a lot of compensated bridges in my life on my instruments but it resulted insatisfactory every time. But for the first time since tomorrow, I do not spend 90 % of my time manipulating over and over again the 3rd string's mecanic on my instrument. I play a hundred per cent of my time !You can be confident with people at Banjo Teacher and buy this product. It is the best ever for your banjo !Charley (France)
