Thread Name: Tech: Mandolin Bridges
Subject: RE: Tech: Mandolin Bridges
Dick- I've been making my own bridges for several years now. I usually use bebinga as the material of choice. I starteed on banjos and moved to mandolins. A scroll saw is really helpful in the initail stages but there is still a fair amount of hand work. It's really worth it when you string it up and listen to it ring. There is usually someplace like the YMCA or a Senior Center where you can find a lot of free tools to use. Hope this is helpful. Dave
