Hello guys, we generally use 50mm radius for the cello here, I had a client today, his cello had a very convex fingerboard much smaller than 50mm, maybe even smaller than a violin curve and it was a non romberg. This kinda surprised me, I have yet to talk with him if this shape was intentional for his playing preferences. When we look at sources there are tons of different radii suggestions for cello fingerboards from 50s to over 60. We teach our students general cremona specs as 42 for violins, 37 for violas and 50 for cellos. As violin and viola radius are mostly standardized, I wondered what do you prefer when it comes to cello fingerboards. And why to you prefer that radius? Özgün
Hi, sorry for making another bridge curve/shape topic, since there are already some out there, but instead of resurrecting an old topic, it might be better to make a new one. So first let me start by saying I tried quite a few different bridge templates. Ive tried making my own template, using a 42mm radius, aswell as checking that to the 42mm radius playing surface. I downloaded a bridge template, but all seem to have the same problem. As I go up higher in positions when playing, it gets harder and harder to play one string only. I cannot use the pressure that I would like, as it would cause 2 strings to be played, or even 3 strings. I like to play strong, with enough pressure. Does anyone perhaps have any suggestions about what I can do? I want to make a new bridge template, different from the one Ive been using, so any advice on this will be appreciated. Also, what is the usual preference of classical players, regarding bridge shapes/curves/radius? Thank you.
