Replacement Parts for Orchestral Strings
Every accomplished cellist knows how essential the bridge is to the resulting sound of their instrument. Since the strings on a cello expel such a low level of volume on their own, it's up to the bridge to transmit the string's vibrations to a wider surface area, resulting in a louder sound. For this reason, it's important to choose a cello bridge that's cut and shaped carefully with only high quality wood, and you'll find plenty of those in this section. From Glaesel and Florea to Fishman and The String Centre, these are all respected manufacturers that are well known and respected in the orchestral world.
Of course, if you're still in the learning stages of the cello, you don't have to worry about going too far out of your price range for a new bridge. In fact, there are many affordable options in this catalog that will do wonders for your performance, including the Student Cello Bridge from The String Centre and the GL-336 Maple 4/4 Cello Bridge from Glaesel. While you're at it, check out The String Centre's Adjustable Cello Bridges. Featuring adjustable feet, these bridges have a top that is precisely contoured to match any standard fingerboard curvature.
In addition to the bridges mentioned, Fishman offers a model that's equipped with a pickup for those live concerts that require more volume. Delivering an accurate representation of your instrument's natural sound, the Fishman C-200 Concert Series Cello Bridge with Pickup is a piezo-ceramic pickup that's expertly crafted into a pro-level Despiau bridge. Consistent through countless performances, this bridge is ideal for bringing out the unique acoustic voice of your cello.
Considering how many cello bridges make up this selection, you'll certainly benefit from exploring every one available here. You might not realize it now, but making an upgrade to your cello bridge can improve the stability and tone of your cello tremendously - the only thing left to do now is make a choice and experience the difference firsthand.
