Neapolitan Bridge : ‘Il Globo’

    This is a hand-made replacement bridge in ebony or rosewood and bone, to fit old bowlback Neapolitan mandolins, and is based on an existing bridge on an Il Globo bowlback.

   It is 120mm long, 15mm tall before fitting, and 5mm wide, tapering to 3-4mm at the top. The bone saddle is approximately 50-55mm long. It will suit required bridge heights of 5-12mm.

   It will need to be fitted, but comes with a slightly curved foot, to begin fitting to the domed Neapolitan top. String slots can be cut if requested, but I will need to know required spread of strings.
