Despiau viola bridge

Despiau bridges are a valuable asset considering the quality of this essential component. Founded in 1984, the family business ensures by its savoir-faire the selection, style, and design to meet not only the violin-maker’s requirements but also the musician’s. For that matter, well-kept manufacturing secrets built their expertise and worldwide fame in the market. Indeed, each and every Despiau bridge receives a special care that no one in the family ever revealed.

This small piece of maple wood has been selected with great care through analyses of its mechanical and acoustic qualities. This is how the different qualities are ranked, with one tree being the most common, and up to three trees representing the most outstanding bridges.


Advantages of a good bridge

  • Responsiveness: a good bridge lessens the delay in response time between the string and the resonant body of the instrument. Therefore, the viola reacts faster to bow strokes.
  • Brightness: a higher quality of wood also leads to a more precise and controlled sound.
  • Power: the tonal performance of the instrument is greatly enhanced and will provide a more nuanced playing experience.


Getting your Despiau viola bridge

When you place your order, the bridge is absolutely not ready to be used. Indeed, it must be cut to fit perfectly on your viola and to offer the best tone and playability. If you wish to get a Despiau viola bridge, contact me now to book an appointment.
