Hand-crafted Banjo Bridges and Banjos

Welcome to Kat Eyz
Banjo Bridges and Banjos

The Kat Eyz banjo bridge: old wood, new design!

Kat Eyz banjo bridges are hand made by Mike Smith from hard rock maple and your choice of selected top hardwoods.

Kat Eyz recently introduced McCormick Spice Factory Old-growth Maple from the old McCormick spice factory, built in 1904. We're really excited about this wood for banjo bridges!

Also available: old submerged timber (maple and birch) recovered from the bottom of the US Great Lakes and tributary rivers. Also a great choice for your next banjo bridge!
