Nothing beats the old standby of maple and ebony when it comes to a banjo bridge. The “Grover® style” bridges have long been favored by owners of older banjos for the transparent tone they transmit. Steve made a few subtle refinements in the design and manufacture and the result is the Huber Banjo Bridge – the one installed on every new Huber banjo.
The Huber Bridge is made from 50 to 100 year old maple by Bryan Sims, exclusively for Huber Banjos.

I love it. I put a 11/16 standard spaced on my old TB150 conversion and it really opened it up.

These days there are more exotic and “mystery” wood bridges than you could shake a stick at. The .656 and 11/16″ bridges I ordered were flawless. I liked the tone of both and after numerous recording samples still love the sound of my original 5/8″‘ and the new ones. Transparency as Steve mentions, is the name of the game, IMO. If you have a great rim, great tone ring, and great setup with Huber engineering, put on a Huber bridge that lets those quality components shine.

I have used the Huber bridges several times and I like them very much, great sound.

I ordered an 11/16 Huber Bridge to raise the action on one banjo and switched my 5/8″ Huber bridge to my Gibson Mastertone. Now both banjos sing! Huber bridges are the best I’ve ever used in 37 years of playing…

The 5/8′ Huber bridge with standard spacing was just what I needed to complete the setup of my Huber banjo. The tone and playability are perfect! I now have an instrument that surpasses my 2 old Mastertones.

Love the Huber bridges. They really bring out the tone on my banjos!

Very smart design; the feet are a bit wider and transfer more energy into the resonator. It makes a huge difference and really opens up my Dow Wilbur!

I have a 2005 Gibson Style 5 that has been giving me fits for many years. I recently put on a calfskin head for the first time and mated it with a 5/8″ Standard Huber Bridge. The sound is now absolutely incredible; talk about “pop”. I would seriously put it up against Sonny Osborne’s Granada. In fact, I am so satisfied that I just purchased a second Huber bridge for my other Gibson.
