Some packets from China are decidedly better than others.

I have been looking to obtain some "Cinderella" brand Chinese violin bridges since I saw one on a Cecilio CVN 600 violin that I purchased.  This desire substantially increased when I began experimenting with the roasting process on violin bridges.  But the only place I found them was on Amazon for, to me, a lot of money.

I finally found an auction for them on eBay and took a chance.  They came yesterday.

I had been buying Chinese bridges in bulk and it is obvious that they were created using some numerical controlled machine such as a laser or water spray cutter (not that this is a bad thing).  The Cinderella bridges are hand machined using a pattern outline.  They are cut to a slimmer profile than the industry norm.  But the biggest difference is the quality of wood used in the Cinderella brand.  Each bridge is cut from a piece of maple bursting with vein "rays."  I can't wait to roast them and try them out.    

Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.         —Frank Zappa

Interesting. Let us know how they turn out.
