Have either of you heard that the bridge on a fiddle is shaped different than that of a violin? What I’ve been told is the radius on the bottom or high string side is not as round or flatter, if you will, than that of a violin. Realizing of course that they are the same instrument, I’ve heard that “fiddle” players will file this curve down to be able to play three note chords on the bottom three strings. Have either of you heard tell of this?
