The sound of your cello depends greatly on the bridge it's equipped with. The reason is because the instrument's strings produce very faint sound on their own - hence, it's the bridge's job to amplify the string vibrations by transferring them to a bigger surface area. Thankfully, finding a cello bridge made from high quality wood and crafted with careful precision is easy if you stick to this catalog. In fact, companies like The String Center and Glaesel have built strong reputations for their cello bridges, and each of them, along with many others, have models available on this page.
While there are many professional-level cello bridges here, newcomers to the instrument shouldn't stress over spending too much on a new one; your best bet is to go with a bridge that's designed specifically with your skill level in mind. Need a suggestion? Check out The String Centre Student Cello Bridge: this German made model is for 4/4 Size cellos and it also just happens to be a top seller.
This selection also consists of top-notch self-adjusting cello bridges. For example, the Glaesel Self-Adjusting 4/4 Cello Bridge boasts moveable feet that automatically conform to changes in the top curvature of your instrument to result in the most precise fit possible. Now, for all you professionals of the stage, you'll definitely want to take a closer look at the Fishman C-200 Concert Series Cello Bridge. Featuring a Fishman C-200 piezo-ceramic cello pickup to bring out an accurate reproduction of your cello's natural voice, this one-of-a-kind Despiau bridge will have your amazing cello skills realized by everyone in attendance at your next big performance.
An upgrade to your cello bridge can do wonders for your instrument's tone and playability - and with so many models to choose from on today's market, there's no reason why you can't find one that perfectly matches your tastes and budget. Whether you're a member of an orchestra, chamber ensemble or even if you prefer to play solo, there's a cello bridge for you in this section.
