Nice, unusual but sadly ruined/damaged bridge

Recommended Posts

I once had a small collection of these, beside other "special" bridges. One of the rabbit ears bridges is stamped "Meisterklang", the other Tonpracht. You can find them sometimes in old violin cases, or maybe in Ebay.

I would guess that the extra "ears" are in effect resonators designed to suck up and dissipate high frequencies before they get to the corpus, to mellow out the sound. Is that correct?

That bridge was probably fine, until someone made the mistake of putting strings on it. :D

Hahaha!

looks like a regular blank that was put on a low projection "fiddle", shaved down to get low action, shaved flatish symmetrical  to play crossover double stops, and all of that before the acid

Whatever their deficiencies in deciding how to apply them, someone had excellent bridge carving skills.  :)
