Impedance Bridge with Stiffening Wings

European Union Intellectual Property Office

First in the World Impedance Bridge with Stiffening Wings in nylon-string guitars.

Through this special construction, the bridge’s mass has been significantly reduced, which positively affects the sound propagation at the guitar body. The winged construction allows for a better sound projection and control of the impedance mismatch.

Longer sustain, louder instrument

Controlling the impedance mismatch between the string and the saddle-bridge-top system allows achieving a perfect counterpoise of loudness and the sustain of the instrument.

Increased stiffness

The winged construction enables the same stiffness properties at a significantly reduced mass

Reduced mass and dimensions

Reduction of the mass and dimensions allows for easier vibration of the soundboard

Unique design

The wings give the bridge a unique look
