Accessories - The Enterprise Bridge

The Enterprise Bridge

Nechville Bridge Nechville Bridge

The Enterprise banjo bridge combines the best aspects of every professional bridge into one guaranteed bridge. You may have tested identical-looking bridges and wondered why there are sometimes big differences in tone between them. Look at the features that effect tone, features that make for easier playability, and features that are good ideas from the structural and functional standpoint. The most distinctive Enterprise feature is its uniquely curved top edge. This shape is hand sanded into each bridge to provide accurate scale length compensation and optimal playability for medium and light gauge string sets.
