Replacing split bass bridge
Once the plate is removed from your grand piano the sound board and bridges are exposed for repair as needed. Bridges crack when a soundboard swells from moisture and when string tension increases especially on the ends (upper treble and bass) from infrequent tuning and sporadic playing. We suggest five minutes of chromatic scales in all seven octaves twice weekly to minimize these two repairs.
Sometimes a bridge may be repaired but in most cases they need either a new cap or to be replaced.
