At the first shop where I worked, my colleagues and I would huddle around the shop computer and compare the finer points of great bridges on the violinbridges website from time to time. The site is an excellent resource, and it’s nice to see a beautifully produced book that one can sit down with. Certainly a good conversation piece for luthier gatherings!
I ordered one last night, it was shipped today. Thanks Gerard - great service!
It's well worth the money.
many thanks its been a labour of love for many years, now accepting bridges for book two :)
I have now created a measurements download for those who want to delve deeper into the measurements.
