Yes. Quite true. That's the theory, anyway. But try it, sometime, on a beast like this. Lutenists spend most of their lives "compensating." :A good lute player can compensate for intonation at the bridge by adjusting where they place the loop
that's pretty cool! are there any side effects, like some dampening of the string? would older gut strings be in more need of compensation compared to modern man-made materials?Michael.N. wrote:The Lute bridge does allow for compensation. It's all in how near (or far) one places the loop or the string stop in relation to the bridge. That is adjustable, more readily adjustable than any fixed Guitar saddle. Same with the action. It's much quicker to alter lute action than it is on a fixed Guitar saddle.
Amazing. It seems so simple yet by design or by accident, all the adjustment is incorporated into the bridge.
