Neapolitan Bridge : ‘Venzana’

    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 a Venzana bowlback.

   It is 130mm long, 10-12mm tall before fitting, and 6mm wide. The bone saddle is approximately 50mm long. It will suit required bridge heights of 4-8mm. depending on the curve of the top.

   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.
