Despiau violin 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 violin 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 violin 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 violin and to offer the best tone and playability. If you wish to get a Despiau violin bridge, contact me now to book an appointment.

Countries outside the European Union may apply a customs tax. Additional charges may apply depending on the content of the package. Please do not hesitate to contact me or the customs office in your country if you have any questions or concerns.

Deliveries for strings and accessories that measure under 3 cm are made in registered mail format and are therefore sent by the French Post Office. This applies both to national and international deliveries. This is a simple and efficient way to have your order shipped to you directly.

For larger accessories and instruments, I use the Chronopost or TNT solutions. A tracked shipment can either be delivered directly to your home or to a pick-up location, depending on your preference, which you will be asked to specify at checkout.

I generally ship orders between 1 and 4 working days. However, in exceptional circumstances, such as when travelling, I may not be able to meet these deadlines. In this case I will inform you as soon as possible.

For shipments outside of France, transporters may differ depending on the daily quotation.
