    • In my humble experience, this material does not feel very suitable to sufficiently withstand the particular wear caused by the playing strings on the main bridge when playing “meend”. Making sliding tones makes the vibrating strings move laterally across the surface of the bridge and cause an extra-abrasive effect. I must confess, though, that I have not tried this out (yet), but the experience I had when working the material strongly suggests this to me. Perhaps this material will be able to produce a good sound, but I fear it will involve very regular “jawari” work. In addition, it will not be easy to do justice to the structure and optical effects incorporated in this material.
