Are cheap bridges any good?
I need a new bridge and I was looking at these ones on ebay
Would these be good bridges? All the music stores in my area are asking $50 for a bridge, and then I'd still have to pay a luthier to fit it to my violin.
What's the difference between a $50 bridge and a $5 bridge?
There's a lot of hocus pocus with bridges but I can not tell you about expensive ones because I have always used cheap ones ........ with NO problem. Besides, I think all the bridges you listed were blanks. You would have to fit them. That's one reason they are so cheap. You do have a choice for a ready-to-go however for $20:
I suspect that a $50 bridge is that price because this is what the market will bear.
Your bridges from EBay may turn out to be a lot more work than you bargained for.
Look down the site about 3/4 of the way for "Aubert Adjustable". The feet pivot.
When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
