Welcome to Purcell Banjo Bridges!
Here you will find some of the finest banjo bridges on the market. Each bridge is made-to-order, with the customer in mind. There are no shortcuts, only quality craftsmanship and a dedication to bringing rich, complex sounds to your banjo. I use old reclaimed wood as well as select wood. I use ebony for my top wood, however I do have a small supply of some exotic wood, such as, African Blackwood, Purpleheart, Katalox, and Bloodwood, for top wood as well. All of my bridges are quality handmade by me here in my shop, located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Thanks for stopping by and I hope I can be of service to you. Happy pickin'
"No Sag" bridges
Just to let everyone know.....I am now putting a 36" radius on the feet of all my bridges, unless a customer specifies otherwise. This eliminates any sagging due to down pressure from the strings.
