I have collecting some images so I thought that I would start a new topic.  Enjoy the mutants.803ED8AE-9DA2-44CB-8CFD-D3E3D298ED34.jpegImage Enlarger3B83BA04-4EB3-411A-8FDC-BC4BD799D548.jpegImage Enlarger4A1A62EE-BDC9-4762-8A41-04620D9029E5.jpegImage Enlarger

I like the 2nd one.

 

Is this something you made or can we buy these somewhere?

Would the differences of the ornate carvings affect the sound? Or a less negative way of asking, because it might sound nice, produce a different sound? They look neat.

I was wondering the same thing as @cid or do they all produce the same sound but are "signature" bridges. In other words, the shape is a bridge maker's unique shape or his signature bridge that indicates who made it.

I owe @bocaholly for this photo, since I could not find one.  By the way, if anyone has an example of one of these, I would like to purchase it.  2B046551-63C0-4966-A35E-C365EA5601D1.jpegImage Enlarger

I too love these bridges. Not sure any of them help in producing a great sound but am open minded about it.
The one that you (BobbyFay) like is the one that has the greatest contact area on the top of the instrument. Logically I would suspect that it's not great to have this shape but I could very well be wrong.
