There's not much to tell. I received a maple bridge, as described. It is considered to be a blank, which is standard procedure and which means it needs to be professionally fitted on the violin. One thing, though. It is an inexpensive bridge and changing the bridge makes a big difference in how the instrument sounds. Take advantage of the fact that it's inexpensive, which means you should probably order 3 or 4 of them and then decide which one to keep on your instrument, after testing the sounds. Some will produce high sounds some low sounds and then it also depends on your violin. Have some fun deciding which one will sounds better. Also, some people believe that if you buy an expensive bridge it is automatically better. Nothing could be further from the truth (I am a luthier, BTW). You are much better off buying half a dozen cheap bridges, then deciding which one sounds better, then buying a single expensive bridge as you really have no idea how that one expensive bridge will sound on your violin. Also, to properly fit a bridge you will actually need some specialized jigs. One jig is a bridge jack, which will help you determine the correct height (as you will need to carve the blank) and the other tool is a bridge shaping jig. However, there are some techniques that some experienced luthiers use, without those jigs. But they are experienced luthiers. Bottom line, you can't just put any blank bridge on any violin and call it done. Yes, you will produce sounds but that won't be a properly fitted bridge, regardless if the bridge was a cheap one or an expensive one.

Eric The material is not the same. C2 is better.
