Hello Mr. Patrick Neher.
First, let me introduce myself. I am an "old" amateur , just started again to play after 25 years.
I have just got back my old dB from renovation and there is a technical issue I would like to learn about.
I bought a Tomastick "bell canto" set of strings and currently my bridge setup is too high and pressure of the G string below the octave level becomes difficult (pressure needed by the finger).
Since my bridge is not adjustable, I will have to process the wood myself. So I need some reference points before I start.
I wonder, can you recommend a preferred string height (about the second octave of the string)
My current setup is:
G 8.5 mm
D 10.2 mm
A 11.5 mm
E 13.5 mm
My dB is 3/4 in size
You might want to try this question in the setup/repair section.
At the end of the fingerboard, I like 5mm at G, D, A, and 8mm at E. Your fingerboard MUST be perfectly aligned to the arc of the bridge (and visa versa!). Also, a lot depends on the thickness of the strings. I use a MUCH thinner string set: Pirastro Permanent and Savarez Corelli Medium.
