Removing A Bass Bridge
By Larry Mayo

I'm reworking a Monarch upright player as a base for a nickelodeon builtup. I previously replaced the pins, and epoxied a few small cracks, but this time, I'd like to have the bridge duplicated. How do I get the bridge out without destroying the sounding board? Is there a trick to it? The sounding board already has a few cracks that need to be fixed, and I don't want to add any more. The previous repairs I made to the bridge seem to be stable, but I guess I'd like it to be perfect. Maybe the risks of removing it are more than the potential improvements. Any voices of experience out there who would care to comment?
