    Any of you guys have interesting experiences building wooden bridges? I've carved wooden saddles for use on an otherwise brass bridge and I am pleased with the change in tone. My inspiration is of course the double bass.

    Wondering if anyone has experimented with this to produce a sound closer to the double bass.

    Oh, so the wood lies on top of piezos that came with the bridge... How do you think the tone will be will wood vibrating against the crystals instead of the default brass? I still don't have the blend unit so I have no idea what will happen.
