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.
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
The wings give the bridge a unique look
