TOM Bridge angle

Recommended Posts

TOM bridges are angled to provide compensation for the scale length differences between the different strings (please, purists take no offence :D )

Here is a diagram that gives the idea. Can't recall where I got it - some manufacturers website probably. It would be a good idea to check with who make your bridge for their recommendations. The angle is toward the low E string, that is, low E is closer to the bridge (for you lefties).

Hope this helps.
