Bridge Angle With Roller Bridge?

Recommended Posts

So I haven't quite found the answer to this question anywhere.

When TOM bridges are set, it seems that people typically angle the bridge by making the bass side about 2-3 mm longer than the scale. Is it okay to do this with a roller bridge? I know it's only a small angle, but the rollers will not be perpendicular to the strings. I'm probably over thinking this.

I've found the Schaller to be an very nice roller bridge.

The saddles ARE angled. being able to adjust the string spread is a bonus.

Picked up a Gretsch-type (space bridge?), where the saddles are just grooved thumbwheels on a threaded rod.

On sale for way cheap and I liked the looks. They are also canted, but just slightly.
