Home Bouzouki Bridge : 'Compensatedí Repro Bridges
This is a hand-made replacement bridge in ebony or rosewood and bone, and decorated with MOP dots. It should fit bouzoukis, Irish bouzoukis or mandolas. It is made especially for the larger bridge heights on some of these instruments. It is a compensated bridge that allows a slightly longer scale length to the 2nd and 4th strings. The extent of compensation is about 3mm.
It is 125mm long, 25-30mm tall before fitting, and 8-9mm wide at the foot, with a slant of 2-3mm. The bone saddle is approximately 50-55mm long. It will suit required bridge heights of 12-25mm. The spread of string slots is about 40mm.
It will be posted with a flat foot, and so will need to be fitted to domed mandola/bouzouki tops.
slots may be omitted or altered if required, but by the nature of
the compensated sections, the string placement is fairly fixed.
