Silly. Yes, of course the sound would go back into the fiddle if the bridge is upside down.. Melvin Wine once told someone in my presence that his Second fiddle, usually in his twin fiddle case, was just Learning the tunes.. I hadn't noticed if the bridge on his second fiddle was upside down or not.. I think I'll string up my ugly fiddle, "ugly Betty", with a bridge like the one shown and see how she sounds.. We may be onto something..I'll get back...
