i saw that on this site: http://www.peter-sheppard-skae.....l-cannone/

the author quoth \"What is wonderful about this little bridge, is if you want to play a four note chord such as (pays Csharp-G -Bflat-E )-it is just there. On a modern bridge, it is almost impossible to get to those notes simultaneously, withouth making the violin shout, or breaking the chord.\"

another one : \"I would like to draw attention to another practical feature of this unusual bridge. If I play the beginning of Paganini’s 16th Caprice, slowly, the advantage of the bridge become clear.\"

this kind of bridge must be good...i wonder.....

cheers! - ⁰ℨ
