  • The physical parameters of a violin bridge have a significant influence on the tonal colouration of its sound. The resonance peaks of the bridge shape the response of the violin body. Reinicke and Cremer developed a simple bridge model that shows a typical broad frequency peak around 2.5kHz, because it incorporates the coupling to the violin body and the soundpost. By using the same model, Jim Woodhouse revealed the effect of some parameters of the bridge (mass, stiffness and foot spacing) on… CONTINUE READING
