I have a student violin (made in Germany), which has an Aubert bridge. However, due to some courier mishap, the bridge broke into two pieces. Rest of the violin/case/bow etc seems fine. I then took it to a local violin repairman who used a hard wood based kwik fix gum to glue the pieces. I intend to buy and set up a new bridge sometime soon. I could do it now but there aren't any notable luthiers nearby. How long will this bridge last.
Will this drastically reduce the tone? Or are there any serious repercussions if I play on a glued bridge?
Here is a photo of it
