About This Item

IMPORTANT: Most instrument replacement parts are not intended to be
installed by the customer; they MUST be installed by a trained luthier.
SHAR cannot assume any liability for damage that may be caused by
improper installation of replacement parts.


Made in France by Aubert, these bridges are cut to accommodate most instruments of the selected size. The hinged feet adjust to the contour of the top plate of the instrument. A standard height is is cut, the thickness is shaped, and standard string spacing is notched. These are not guaranteed to fit any instrument.

Question By:
KRISTINA WIRTZ
From KALAMAZOO, MI

Asked On: 01/08/2017

My violin's bridge snapped--first time this has happened, and the local violin-maker is out of town for the month, so a violin teacher is going to help me install a bridge I order from Shar. I picked one out but no idea whether I'd need high, medium, or low height??? full-sized German-made violin (est. 1870's) so it's smaller and more delicate than the newer ones... Please advise. I don't mind buying 2 bridges but not more than that. I play in a community orchestra (high level) and need a fix soon--borrowing my daughter's violin for short term thanks!

SHAR Answer:

Hello Kristina, there is no standard height for bridges, but rather every bridge is individually fit to the instrument by a skilled luthier. These bridges, which are meant to be used as temporary replacements until a proper bridge can be fitted, offer low, medium, and high options for 4/4 violins, which allows them in many cases to function reasonably well on most instruments. The best way to find which one might work for you, is to hold the pieces of your bridge together (use tape if necessary) so that you can measure from the middle of each foot to the string groove immediately above it. These measurements should give you the G and E string heights, which are now listed in the "About This Item" section for these bridges. I hope this information is useful to you! If you no longer have the bridge pieces, a medium height will typically be your best guess!
