No one plays a beautifully crafted archtop expecting less-than-transcendent tone,
and the Graph Tech ResoMax Archtop Bridge ensures that every nuance of your instrument's gorgeous sound is delivered with high-definition resolution.
Conventional wood bridges can produce erratic variations in sound due to dead spots, inconsistent density and other factors—no matter whether the bridge is constructed from rosewood, ebony, or generic woods.
But the Graph Tech ResoMax Archtop Bridgeis crafted under high heat and pressure from 100-percent organic polymers, and produces a balance of articulation, sustain, volume, and harmonics that truly brings out the distinctive character of your prized archtop.
Multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, and animal lover Ruby Leigh has packed one heck of a music career into her 13 years. She has sung with Vince Gill, Mickey Gilley, Pam Tillis, the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, and other major artists. She was also the grand champion of Dolly Parton's 2018 Soul Mountain Vocal Competition, won the grand prize at the Loretta Lynn "So You Think You Can Sing" competition, and has taken home many national awards. All of this from a talented teen who lives in the tiny town of Foley, Missouri (population 150) that is hardly a music business mecca.
"I depend on several Graph Tech products to keep all my instruments sounding great," says Ruby. "I love Dry N' Glide as it keeps my hands dry, and my strings always last twice as long. It leaves my hands smelling nice, too! "

The biggest difference is that a TUSQ XL nut is impregnated with PTFE, and a TUSQ nut is not. This lubrication prevents strings from binding in the slots, and as a result, you get better tuning stability with TUSQ XL nuts — especially when using a tremolo or bending strings. The lubricant in TUSQ XL produces a warmer tone, while TUSQ nuts provide a bit more harmonic content, making them particularly useful for acoustic guitars and other acoustic stringed instruments. By the way, PTFE is impregnated throughout our TUSQ XL nuts, so the lubricating properties never wear out.

What happens when you let 70 tiny zebra finches loose in a room with ten white Gibson Les Pauls, four black Gibson Thunderbird basses, four amps, and delay, distortion, and other effects? Well, the sound the avian musicians make isn't exactly Stravinsky, Glenn Branca, or even Lynyrd Skynyrd ("Free Bird!"), but the "living music" installations by French artist Celeste Boursier-Mougenot show that finches actually make pretty decent experimental guitarists.
