Description

Two pre-cut thin pieces of vellum for gluing on the bridge under the E or A string. Avoids the ned to use bridge protectors typically included with E strings which are easily cut through or lost.

The vellum needs to be glued to the bridge over the string groove. For best results ensure the bridge is clean and free of grease or old rosin. Superglue is recommended. Fitting should ideally be undertaken by a suitably qualified workman.

A good product
5 out of 7 found the following review helpful

Pros: I found my A string was cutting into the bridge so used a little epoxy resin to raise the seat of the slot, redressed the slot to a slightly greater width to account for the additional vellum material, stuck one side of the vellum to the bridge with super glue, bent the vellum over and used an edge to push vellum into the slot to profile a groove. Fitted A string and tuned up so everything was under working load, then carefully stuck the other side of vellum to bridge. Dead easy.

Cons: No complaints, although a little pricey for what it was.

Easy to use if advice is followed
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Standard pieces of bridge vellum which I have used previously but always with some difficulty. What made these particular pieces different was the simple advice to soak briefly in water before fitting! It worked a treat and removed the frustration I’d previously experienced!

Cons: None

How much will it cost to replace your bridge?
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: For my money, these are the best way to protect the bridge of your cello. They're small, unobtrusive pieces of opaque vellum that fit over the string slots of the bridge preventing strings cutting into the bridge.

Cons: Not any downside to this product
