Snuffy Smith Pegged Banjo Bridges

The new Snuffy Smith pegged banjo bridge combines the original Snuffy Smith with the new technique of adding pegs for the best banjo bridge tone and sound. 

Upgrading your banjo bridge is a great way to improve your banjo tone dramatically at a very low cost. The new innovation of adding pegs to the top of your banjo bridge is brilliant. Now you can combine this new innovation of inserting pegs into the top of the banjo bridge and the punchy banjo tone of the Snuffy Smith Bridges.

Video Demonstrating Snuffy Smith Bridge on Gold Star GF-85
Swapping out a bridge is easy. I have a video link on this page. On the Video I'm sorry that my voice is not louder on the video (I play a lot louder than I talk) This video from 2007 could be better quality but it shows you how easy it is to change the bridge and gives you a sound comparison. I compare a Goldstar GF 85 with it's stock bridge and then with the Snuffy Smith Bridge.

I highly recommend the Snuffy Smith Banjo Bridges. It made a significant improvement in tone on my banjo when I switched to these banjo bridges. A high quality maple banjo bridge will even make a less expensive student model banjo sound a lot better too. Adding or upgrading to a better banjo bridge on any banjo makes a lot of sense. It's a small investment with a big return. Your tone will improve dramatically. Why use a common stock bridge on your banjo? The bridge is where the tone starts. The bridge vibrating on the banjo head produces the tone that resonates to your banjo pot. That's why the bridge is so critical in the production of sound. There is no sense in cutting corners here. Why not see how good your present banjo can sound with a better bridge before making more expensive changes or even buying a new banjo.

One of the features that I liked about the Snuffy Smith bridges was the compensated G bridge, Style 2, that Snuffy came up with. The G string on a banjo is inherently sharp. It's a known fact that banjo players and designers have been trying to compensate for this inherent problem for many years. This slight notch on the third string sets the 3rd string back on the bridge ever so slightly without affecting the tone in anyway. Other attempts at compensating banjo bridges can kill the tone or make the bridge look warped. This is a fantastic innovation that is all you need to compensate the 3rd string without losing anything in performance or appearance.

These Bridges are money back guaranteed. If it does not fit or make your banjo sound better. You can return for a full refund.

Different Sizes

Another great feature of the Snuffy Smith Bridge is the availability and versatility of having so many size options to choose from. I carry different sizes in my case for changes in my string action caused by normal fluctuating temperatures and humidity changes. I don't like having to bring my banjo in for set up every time my action gets too low or too high. When I'm playing a banjo with a Standard 5/8 bridge I have a 9/16 which is slightly lower and the 21/32 which is slightly higher on hand. It sure beats twisting the coordinator rods or making truss rod adjustments. I don't find that the small variation in bridge sizes affects my picking or feel and it is a much better alternative to buzzing strings with the action being too low or higher action than I am used to.

Wanted to share. Have a banjo I just couldn't wake up. Tried many different bridges and nothing worked. Read up on your snuffysmith pegged bridge and ordered it. It was amazing, made all the difference. It is clearer and brighter and lots more volume. Thanks !!!!! Ronald Ashworth.
