The bridge is one thing but the cutting of the bridge is of utmost importance.I would recomend a trip to Mike Shank at Shank strings.It would be hard to find anyone better.His web site is Shankstring@earthlink.net
: A Kolstein bridge with Teflon-coated ebony adjusters is IMHO, the best adjustable bridge money can buy. The only thing is - it's quite a bit of money!
: try www.kolstein.com
: Most luthiers who work on basses regularly can fit a bridge with conventional metal adjusters. The ebony ones are nice because sometimes - but not always - the metal ones give a sort of metallic edge to the sound.
: If you're a luthier or a do-it-yourselfer, try: http://www.lemur-music.com
: They have bridges and adjusters
: Hope that helps
