Questions & Answers

How accurate is the photo of the top of the bridge in terms of its shape? It looks like I need to stop hitting two strings at the same time with the arc. ?

I think it looks the same as in This one also has the same shape as a previous one I have of a different brand. It probably fits in a standard hole. For the bottom feet to fit you violin, you will have to carve them into shape. It may be because the bottom of the instrument you use now wasn't carved properly and it is making it difficult for you to hit two strings?

Is there an accurate measurement of the Please accept my thanks. ?

Bridges are cut to dimensions that comply with standard 4/4 requirements

Are you able to use it on an electric motor?

HI, this would work for an electric violin as most electric violins have sanded bottoms. However, you might have to alter it as most electric violins have flat feet. The violin you play will make all the difference. Feel free to let me know if I can help you in any way. James, a big thank you! Alexi Strings, thanks for your time!

Is it possible to tell me how high the G and E strings are?

In general, an E string is 3mm and a G string is 4mm. This is the fifth point. Instruments and musicians' preferences may cause the sound to vary to a certain degree

I was able to use this expertise when I acquired an "old" violin from the early 1980s
4/5

My uncle had left me a violin, which had originally belonged to him. The bridge was very flat because he was a country/western player. The only reason I chose this model was that I just wanted to 'try things out' and didn't want to spend a lot of money on the instrument. Both the E and the G are approximately 1 foot tall I have noticed that the strings are raising 5mm higher than they should with my setup, but since I switched to Tonica strings from the steel ones I originally purchased, this hasn't become an issue. I liked the experience of getting the feet set up for the body, and I also had fun with it. TAAKE YOUR TIME when you do this, and work with some small files and a SHARP blade. You can find videos on youtube that will guide you through this.

It is semi-decent In Semi-fitted, we mean The fit was perfect
5/5

Bridge is constructed well and with a couple hours of tinkering with a razorblade and sand paper - it could be further improved Using the latest technology, we will create a new bridge with the exact string action you'd like. Your violin must have its feet flush against its body. This is the most difficult part. First I used different grades of sandpaper on the top of my violin, then I applied a thin layer of lipstick to the face of the instrument, pressed the bridge into it, and checked where the high points were. If you want to cut off the high points of the horn, you just use a razorblade. If you are finished, your old violin will have been revitalized. It requires some patience and dexterity, but it's worth the effort. The ebony insert is a 1/16" thick so I'm not sure how much it makes of a difference. Despite having only a 1/8" veneer on the E string side, it sure looks great! In my case, I thinned out my bridge to specs, and the ebony filled about 80% of the area on the top, so it must contribute. Though I used the plastic tube to keep my strings from cutting through it, I still attached my strings to it.

It is necessary to sand the surface
5/5

You do indeed need to sand down the feet to fit them to the contours of your violin. The process is quite simple and can be done by Using a little 100 or 150 grit sandpaper, cut a small piece and shape it into a square, you can rock the bridge around until it fits. This method will require patience, but will work. Bringing back an old violin to life! I also really like the sound of it.

This bridge is nice but the height is rather short
3/5

While I am not able to use it (this bridge is smaller than I prefer), I am not disappointed in the build quality and visual appeal of this bridge. Taking a look at the bridge, here's what you need to know. As some have suggested, the bridge does have an ebony insert. It is not painted, as some have said. This is observable by looking at the grain pattern of the wood. Upon seeing the front and back of the deck, the maple wood grain appears to be good From the pattern, it seems to be a lower grade maple, but from the side view, a more parallel and higher quality pattern is visible. The reverberation feature did not stay on my instrument, so I was not able to discover what tonal qualities it offers. It's a very good value as well.

The bridge was nice and thick, and besides you need to match it to your instrument, it looks really good. Of course you need to change In order to fit an instrument and a player, any and all bridges need trimming, if necessary. me, I like bridges that are higher than the ground, and I like the shape of my bridge to be left center rather than uniform (more classical).

I'm still unsure if I should keep it or return it, to be honest
3/5

It has become a pet project. I almost returned it A paint overlay is not an insert on the e string groove, but rather is strictly paint. But then you will have to have it shaped to fit your violin, or you will have to do it yourself. I decided to keep my current bridge and shape it myself due to the fact that my then current bridge allowed my E string to hug my fingerboard in so many places.
I think I will spend more time comparing and reading reviews before I purchase my next bridge. People may think e strings tend to sink more strongly as they assume they will be more sturdy. The answer is yes. It is probably not worth it to you if you are not proficient with woodworking or don't have or won't go to a luthier nearby. Getting an already-fitted violin would be something I would do by contacting my violin maker. When I realized that I may still have to fit the feet to where they line up with the sound post. *This is my first violin. I like learning about them and getting to know them better in general. I thought it was an interesting project. I found it a lot more challenging to apply acoustics to electric systems. I just wanted to let you know. At least for now, I am satisfied with how high my e string is.

I received my bridge just now and it is excellent quality, but there is an unfortunate defect
3/5

As part of a large order for violin parts, I simply ordered this part which I had been looking forward to the most. Unfortunately, this particular bridge had a manufacturing defect, but it may have only been my particular one. Other than that, the quality and workmanship looked I had a problem with the ebony insert, which did not fit properly. There was a gap in it, and the ebony itself showed signs of shrinkage and cracking as if the wood had been moist when it was manufactured and had become dehydrated thereafter. I am not confident that the E-Rider will stay attached, or that the insert will remain on it. I think it should have been an amazing bridge, but I don't trust it. The sound will be properly transmitted to the violin through the string. There may have been a one-time defect in the factory or the mill that processed the ebony may have not kept its dryer kilns running properly. Although I did receive a refund for this order, I would like to try it again, perhaps either with a V insert or on a plain bridge without one since the quality otherwise felt and looked.

During the first two months, the ebony insert started to come loose
3/5

It didn't pose much of a problem to fit the bridge, and I was satisfied It made me very happy, in fact. However, then, the ebony insert began to separate from the maple surrounding It was a good thing I noticed it before the entire bridge cracked, because it was bending over severely and was headed for complete collapse. In spite of the fact that I have glued it back together, the results do not seem that good. The bottom line is that I would not While the idea for the ebony insert for the E string seemed great, its execution was not up to scratch.

It cost me just over fifty dollars to replace the bridge of When I replaced the bridge on a cheap violin, it was as if the instrument were new
5/5

I'm very happy with how the new bridge worked. With this method, the player can avoid playing two strings at the same time.
