Classic-styled Fiberlite Upright Bass Bridges
Classic-styled Fiberlite Upright Bass Bridges:
Sound Composites has developed a lightweight (4.46 oz./125 gram) and distinctive style of bridge for upright bass. Two widths of bridge, to compliment different fingerboard and body characteristic are available.
Greater acoustic volume
Enhanced harmonic content
These bridges increase the transfer of the string’s vibrational energy to the instrument’ acoustic chamber. The bridges develop a more complete fundamental and harmonic overtone series and provide more focus than traditional wood bridges. They do not warp, fold or ever need to be replaced as with aging wood bridges.
The classic-styled Fiberlite model incorporates a hollow core with visible carbon fiber under a glossy surface finish. These attarctive 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 top may be altered to reflect fingerboard arc and/or other player requirements.
2) The installer may trim the bottom of the bridge legs to reduce overall height.
3) The wood feet may be trimmed while matching the bridge to the instrument top.
4) The wheel adjusters may be used as appropriate.
