Deering Smile™ Banjo Bridge

$39.95

 

Deering’s new patent-pending Smile™ Banjo Bridge is created to fit into the natural curve created on a banjo head when under string tension. This relieves the stress found in a traditional bridge allowing the Smile™ Bridge to vibrate without constriction. The result is an instantly fuller and more expressive midrange, less constricted low end frequencies, and a wonderful balance across all strings.

Checkout the New Deering Tony Trischka Signature Models  

Please indicate if you would like the standard string spacing or the wider JD Crowe string spacing in the notes at checkout.

*The top/black portion of your banjo bridge is called “the saddle.” This saddle is made to match the shape of the surface of your banjo fingerboard. Most banjo fingerboards are “flat” meaning that they do not have a curved surface. Some banjos are custom made with a curve to the fingerboard which is called a “radiused fingerboard.” This is not to be confused with the curve of the feet of a Smile™ bridge. When choosing the Smile™ bridge please choose the one that has “the saddle” that is shaped like the surface of your fingerboard.
