Schaller 4-String Roller Bass Bridge

About This Item

Roller saddles that adjust for height, intonation and string spacing! Schaller's versatile solidbody bass bridge provides smooth tuning for variable string spreads, ideal for custom neck widths.

Each saddle is adjustable for height and intonation. This bridge will work for string spreads ranging from 2-3/32" to 2-1/2" (53.39mm to 63.50mm).

The cast zinc baseplate measures 3-1/8" x 2-1/4" (79.38mm x 57.15mm). A removable 1/8" (3.00mm) spacer is included for raising the baseplate height if needed.

Grooves in the baseplate prevent lateral movement for more stable tuning. The strings mount at the rear. Mounting screws included.

Useful for easy string spacing, intonation and height adjustment. New build so I don't have anything to compare them with. Should sound great. Solid product.

My review of this bass bridge

By

Verified Buyer


I brought this bridge because of its modern looks and that it is fully adjustable height, up and down and back and fourth intonation very easy. The
Roller string spacing aways works out for my odd neck and nut size basses I make. I m trying out a 6 string version on my 4string bass on top and6string guitar on bottom new build I have the bass strings strung up but not the 6strimgs yet. I'm hoping the 6 bridge will adjust just as easy as the 4 bass does.thank you for listening to what I had to say about this product. I use one on another bass of mine and it works great. and

good luck luck with all you fellow luthiers and your projects. Y I u

Sounds great, easy install

I put one of these on my 1974 Fender p-bass. It was an easy install although it did involve drilling some guide holes. So in case you are someone looking to put this on an old p-bass you will have to add new holes. Sounds great!!!!

Such an easy and forgiving bridge. Had no problems setting intonation on my kit build jazz master, took me ten minutes and got such a sweet sound! Another quality product from Stewmac!

Over the past 30 odd years I've tried many different bridges on my basses. Results varied. The Schaller roller bass bridge, in my humble opinion, is the best one out there. Let me explain.


Installation: There are no string grooves to cut. Just locate and center, drill some holes and you're done. The optional riser plate locks into the bridge, so it doesn't move during installation. You can even lock your bridge ground wire between the bridge and the baseplate if you're not inclined to remove the finish and solder it.


Intonation: Properly located this bridge adjusts in minutes. The groove design, the location of the fine thread adjusting screws and the quality of the workmanship makes this bridge one of the easiest user friendly bridges around.


Adjustability: No matter that your neck dimensions or pole spacings this bridge will accommodate you perfectly. The rollers adjust with just a finger touch. TIP: Using a pencil eraser allows you an unobstructed view and moves the roller quicker.


Tone: Here's what impressed me. Unlike the massive block of brass bridges this one seems to meld with your bass body improving tone, sustain and clarity. Subtle changes in your attack translate perfectly.


Overall: This is the only bridge I use on my basses. I have two guitars with the six string version as well.


If you think you need a new bridge...well, you're probably right. Try this one and you can stop looking.

I am writing a short review of the Schaller roller bass bridge. This is the best bass bridge I have used so far, it is solid, precise and gives a good resonance to the strings because of its weight. The wheel adjustment is very useful and user friendly.
