Title: Need help adjusting the bridge on a new NS CR5 Cello
Post by: echobinary on Oct 24, 2019, 02:31:09 AM
I recently acquired an NS CR5 electric cello - and accidentally bumped the bridge hard enough to move it a bit.
So - obviously it needs to be readjusted. However I have never adjusted a bridge before, much less on an NS.
Are there any tips/pointers out there for anyone looking to do this at home? It shouldn't be terribly difficult
I don't expect - but I'd like to do it right.
I can't seem to find any NS specific videos on bridge adjustment - so I thought I'd ask here.

Thanks!

I'm not sure about NS, but adjusting the bridge should be fairly simple. My only concern would be that since the feet of the bridge are down in that slot, it might be a bit tricky to move it under full string tension. You may find it easier to move it after you've loosened the strings a bit. Be gentle but firm, move it slowly.

Things to aim for:

Let us know how it goes, and especially if you learn anything particular about the NS instrument.
