Mulheron Banjo Bridge
The Mulheron “continuous leg” handmade bridge creates a stable platform that in turn transfers the tone evenly and consistently throughout the entire banjo. The banjo becomes more responsive, creating clarity and providing a warm professional sound, without harsh overtones. The use of a continuous leg also prevents the bridge from sagging over time. The “hole layout” design allows the sound to easily travel from the string to the head by removing excess material, making this bridge delicate in appearance, yet strong in tone and design. All bridges feature a walnut body with a persimmon tone cap and are finished using a non-toxic, food-safe walnut oil. Mulheron bridges are made exclusively for Balsam Banjoworks by master bridge craftsman Lindsey Liden of Mulheron Craft.
Crowe spaced Mulheron Bridges:
Mulheron bridge Crowe spacing adds 1/16th of an inch to the “standard” string spacing. This spacing is great for old-time or clawhammer styles. It allows the player to have easier access between strings, which can help with drop thumb, the bum diddy, and overall control. Crowe spacing also adds a slightly wider spacing in the fretted hand, which can make it easier to find individual notes, play hammer ons, pull0-offs, slides, and helps with cramping. The wider spacing is slight, but you can really feel a difference!
