THIS TOOL MAKES SHAPING VIOLIN BRIDGES AND CORRECTLY SPACING AND MARKING STRING LOCATIONS ON 4/4 VIOLIN BRIDGES A BREEZE.
Template made of 1.00 mm Stainless Steel with Mat Finish
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Directions for using Bridge Template: The Radius of a Violin Bridge should not change from 4/4 to 3/4 they should both be set at 42mm. However the Strings will be positioned closer together.
This COMBINED 'VIOLIN BRIDGE TEMPLATE' allows you to Mark your Bridge for the correct string positions, the Markings are graduated so that you can mark 3/4 Bridge String positions at 11mm centres instead of the 11.5mm centres of a Full Size instrument. Since the strings will be closer together on a 3/4 Instrument.
It is actually quite a complicated procedure marking the String Positions on a Violin Bridge since the correct spacing's are not done by measuring around the arc of the Bridge but perpendicularly. This means the distance measured on the arc is greater between the outside Strings ( G&D Strings and the A&E Strings), than the distance measured between the centre Strings ( D&A Strings). Needless to say if you use my Template it will help you easily and correctly Mark the positions accurately.
When marking String Positions for the full-size 4/4 Bridge use the markings on the outside of the Template. When marking the string spacing's for a 3/4 Bridge use the graduating lines and until the Centre String Spacing on the Gauge measures a distance of 11mm perpendicularly, the rest will follow suit correctly.
Can also be used to show you haw much hair you need to re-hair your bow.

The workable 'Top Face' of the tool is guaranteed free from scratches and defects, however the underside may have small abrasion marks from metal against metal during the manufacturing process.
