Ibex Bridge Clamp

About This Item

A sturdy cast aluminum clamp with 1-1/2" maximum opening and 6" throat depth, for gluing a bridge or brace through a guitar's soundhole.

Designed by pioneering luthier Irving Sloane, this clamp works great with our Bridge Clamping Caul.

Recommended by restoration expert T.J. Thompson for use with the Thompson Belly Reducer, when flattening a "bellied" acoustic guitar soundboard.

Throat too small

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I agree with all the other comments about the opening being too small for most jobs. By the time you have placed a caul deep enough to clear the internal bracing and then placed the bridge clamping caul, it doesn't open far enough. Sure you could 're-engineer' it, but at this price...? I don't think so.

Amost ideal

I have three of these. They dont always clear the braces as comfortably as I think they should. Seems the throat of the clamp should be deeper particularly when used with the associated clamping caul.

Price is a little off.

There is nothing wrong with this clamp, but after I bought it found the exact clamp much cheaper at a couple of different places.
