Popped the bridge Help!!!!


Recommended Posts

What on earth do you mean by "poping the bridge off"? I can only think you mean it's being tipped forward, towards the neck end of the violin. This can happen when you replace strings. As you tighten them, there is a natural forwards pull on the bridge. To help minimize this, rub the groove a little in the bridge where the string passes with a pencil point - the graphite will act as a lubricant. If you see the bridge tipping, you can grasp it with thumb & forefinger of each hand and ease it back so that the feet are flat on the violin top and the bridge is vertical.

I don't think it's a good idea to switch bridges. These things are not "interchangeable parts". They have to be carefully fitted and adjusted by a pro.
