The string "break angle" on Dingwall bridges(and even my old Kahler) is very subtle. There's not a sharp bend across the saddles like a lot of other designs. A string-through body Fender would be and extreme example of this I guess. It seems like the strings "dance" quite a bit more when there's less of an angle at the bridge, I can't really say there's less tension, the strings just seem more responsive. I haven't done anything scientific to support this, just some expirementation with some of my other basses. I'm wondering if this is something you've considered/expiremented with. I'm also wondering if you think maybe these angles can have an effect on how the string's core and windings work or interact together, that's my best theory atm. I'd be curious to hear from anybody who has an opinion on this. Thanks!

We've found that at least with our basses more string angle increases the chance of premature string breakage. We've always kept it low for this reason so have not experimented with steeper angles for this reason.
