Arcotech Fiberlite Upright Bass Bridges


Fiberlite Upright Bass Bridges:


Sound Composites has developed lightweight (4.46 oz./125 gram) traditionally-styled bridges for upright bass. There are two widths of bridge to compliment different fingerboard and body characteristics.

Benefits include:

Greater acoustic volume

Enhanced harmonic content

Increased sustain

These bridges increase the transfer of the string’s vibrational energy to the instrument’ acoustic chamber. The bridges transfer a more complete fundamental and harmonic overtone series while providing more focus than traditional wood bridges. They do not warp, fold or ever need to be replaced as with aging wood bridges.

These classic-styled Fiberlite models incorporates a hollow core with visible carbon fiber under a glossy surface finish, or an alternate satin black finish. These attractive bridges provide a clear, warm, round and full tone throughout their frequency response, with bright, crisp higher frequencies and great sustain.

Sound Composites bridges may be adjusted to accommodate height in three (or with the inclusion of wheel adjusters) in four ways:

1) The bridge tops may be altered to reflect fingerboard arc and/or other player requirements by tooling up to 0.5″/12.5mm off of this top arc.

2) The installer may trim the bottom of the bridge legs to reduce overall height.

3) The wood feet may be tooled while matching the bridge to the instrument top.

4) The wheel adjusters may be used as appropriate.
