Could someone explain how compensation bridges work? I sort of understand them on a guitar but on a guitar, the slope of the compensation in uniform from low to high. I always assumed it was meant to compensate for the string thicknesses from low to high.
But a mandoling bridge has alternating notches. How does this work? I'm looking at making a bridge for my mandolin banjo. Glen has very kindly shipped me some blanks.
Thanks in advance, Dan.
