This escalated quickly!
PS Hitler, that's not how Earl did it.
That's GREAT! Can you do it with Obama?
I meant instead of the rod wire coming out the bottom of one of the feet like I normally do, putting a notch or small hole near the bottom so the rod wire comes out the side of a foot. I`ve used this same rod banjo bridge on my own tunable hand drum banjo and it works great. I`m always experimenting making rod bridges for new applications on stringed instruments. Already made a few fiddle rod bridges, which worked out great, just radius the saddle. I do get a lot of orders for custom rod bridges for stringed instruments that usually wouldn`t be amplified in this way. But that's the fun of making the bridges...lol
Here`s an example of a new amplified bridge design I came up with. This one uses 2 cut piezo disc`s, and it worked out great...even better then I thought it would.....http://www.cigarboxnation.com/photo/floating-saddle-bridge?context=...
This is nice!
As long as you have some crystal left on the brass and you can solder leads to it , it`ll work. My bone carved saddle bridges I use one 41mm piezo disc and I cut it to fit in the carved out chamber underneath the bridge. There I just cut the disc oblong, I use a large pair sissors to cut the disc down.
This was my first design at making my own bridges many years ago, still get orders for them once and a while a bit harder to make then just a rod and a saddle bridge. They sound very good for using an embedded disc in hot glue. http://www.cigarboxnation.com/video/lapsteel-mojobonework-1
