Kolstein Adjustable Bridge with Exotic Wood Adjusters for Upright Basses


These superior bridges are from the Kolstein workshop. They start with the finest seasoned imported maple bass bridges, and then they custom fit exotic hardwood adjusters that are permanently lubricated for ease in adjusting. All hardwood construction allows for the "truest" conduction of sound. 3/4 size stocked, also available as a special order for 1/4, 1/2, and 4/4 sizes.

Note: The Fishman Full Circle is not compatible with the Kolstein adjustable bridge. Wooden adjusters must be larger than typical metal types; wood typically cannot be machined to such a small sizes.

This Bridge is TOO BIG???
That's to be expected! Double basses have different neck angles, which results in the need for different sized bridges -- you can't buy a bridge "off the shelf" to immediately fit your bass. All bridges require fitting. I include instructions to advise you how to trim the top and feet of the bridge to fit your instrument.



How can I be sure I have the right size bridge?
If you look or feel inside through the E string f-hole, you will find the Bass Bar; it runs parallel to and below the E string. If you measure from the middle of the bar to the mid-point of the bass and double the measurement, you now know the proper measurement of the bridge's feet when measured from center to center. Choose a replacement bridge in that range (most basses are 3/4 size, approximately four inches from the center point of each foot ) with a height larger than your current bridge.

Will it fit a 5 STRING BASS or a 4/4 BASS? Quite often, yes. This bridge is suitable for the Bulgarian five string basses I sell and has been found to fit many others. Bass sizing is not an exact science, so you should measure your existing bridge, and the bass itself, using the info in the paragraph above.

This site is ALWAYS the first choice for everything I need for upright bass. My first order I called and left a message for Bob, he called me back promptly and answered all my questions regarding bass bridge replacement so, I bought his adjustable bridge and set it up as well as pro. I appreciate that I see Bob on message boards and blog sites lending his opinion and insight into all things BASS. What he has provided for bassists of all levels is nothing short of amazing, philantropic and innovative. This IS the "one stop" bassists need, truly. Thanks Bob.

thanks for the quick response! my new bridge i bought from you guys (kolstein with wooden adjusters) works great, i brought it to a bass luthier at a festival to get his opinion of my handiwork and he said i did a good job. Couldn't have done it without your expert directions/ info.

I installed the Pirastro strings and Kolstein bridge. The sound is excellent. I recently put the bass track to a TV commercial for our church. The recording engineer ran the bass straight to the board. No amp, no eq box, and the sound was true. Your instructions for the install were perfect. This was my first string job. Thank you.
