I have been experimenting a couple of bridges with varying thickness at the tip. I noticed that a thicker tip tends to lessen or mute the high frequencies. A thinner tip is sharper and more vibrant.
But does bridge height or string action (I.e distance between the strings and the fingerboard) have any effect on sound quality. Usually it is easier to play on higher positions when the action is low.
How is your violin bridge set up and how high are your strings from the fingerboard?
What are your thoughts on this?
