Topic: A Bridge

Does anyone sell a hi A Bridge key casting (forging, machining) that can be easily installed on a Fox Bassoon?  It seems like a fairly simple device that shouldn't be difficult to produce with decent machining skills.

Re: A Bridge

I purchased an A bridge from Womble/Williams. Well made and fairly easy to install. Besides helping with the double venting of A3 and Bb3 and the intonation of the A4 and Bb4, it also made an F3 to G3 trill and F4 to G4 trill more stable in tuning as well. I'd recommend it fairly highly.
