Hello, I am posting this on behalf of a friend:
Her violin bridge measures a 33.5mm at the centre (Mine measures a 31mm), the G string clearance at the end of the fingerboard is 7mm (mine is 5mm) and the e string clearance is at 6(almost 7)mms while mine is only 3.5mm!
She finds that she is consistently double stopping on the strings - a viola friend (she's passed Grade 8) tried the violin and sometimes double stopped too. - she only really play the viola but mentioned that the bridge seems too high... What is the ideal height for the bridge, and does she need to get the bridge lowered?
EDIT: the violin has a stentor bridge, it that makes any difference!
