"I like String Saver saddles because they save my strings from breaking... I’ve been using them now for at least 10 

years, if not longer, and I’ve noticed a significant 

decrease in string breakage.

 I hardly ever break strings anymore."

James Valentine

Maroon 5

“Ratio tuners are on my personal guitars.

They’re great! I can’t believe no one has come up with 

this idea until now! 

Ratio tuners make tuning effortless and easier!”

Richard Fortus

Guns 'n' Roses

“Dry n’ Glide has become an essential part of my nightly ritual. 

I’ve never had a real problem with sweat or moisture, until I used 

Dry n’ Glide and realized how much of a difference it makes,

Now I can't imagine getting through a set without it."

Kelly LeMieux


“Graph Tech's new bass Ratio tuners are amazing! 

These baby’s are smooth, precise and keep me in tune all night. What more do you need” 

Mick Box

Uriah Heep

"Graph Tech stands for the highest quality  components 

and I am delighted to have them on all of my guitars. 

I have Ratio locking machine heads, TUSQ nuts, and 

ResoMax bridges with String Saver Saddles. 

The quality and the look are amazing, and this has really brought my guitars up to the standard I have been looking for.”

Nicole Row

Panic! at the Disco!

“I didn't know tuning my bass could be a recognizably 

better experience.

I love the Ratios, and they're so smooth!”

Jasen Rauch

Breaking Benjamin

"Having been a user of Graph Tech products for years, 

I'm blown away by the Ratio Tuning Machines. 

They’ve outdone themselves this time and these things 

are going on EVERY guitar I own.”

Alice Lane

Killin’ Baudelaire

"I’m really satisfied with Graph Tech's bass Ratio tuners.

I always get a fine tuning control with no issues that cheap 

machine heads can have. 

It’s important to have good tuning machines and it’s for sure 

one of the best upgrades you can do on your instrument. 

Not only do Ratio tuners get you in tune faster, but they 

keep you in tune longer, and just outright feel better to use."

Wes Jeans

String Saver Saddles have been an indispensable

part of my rig for over 20 years.

As hard as I play. I wouldn’t dream of stepping onstage 

without the peace of mind that String Saver Saddles provide!

Superior tone and reliabilIty, what more can 

a player ask for?!

Val Gaina


"When I came to know Graph Tech products, I could not even imagine guitar hardware can be so high-quality. 

Since then I have replaced Graph Tech parts for all hardware pieces on all guitars - and obtained better sound, sustain, separation and a welcome change in the sensation of playing."  

Mitch Malloy

Great White

"The difference that TUSQ® makes is astounding. 

More low end, more high end, more sustain, 

more clarity, more punch."

Ray Ray Star

Two Car Train

Prior to using Resomax bridges, I’d always break strings 

at the same spot…the bridge.

After switching, I hardly ever break strings and the 

sustain is killer! First mod I do to any guitar is swap out 

the bridge for a Graph Tech bridge been using 

Graph Tech products for years cause they’re Freakin’ Killer! 

Sarah Lenore

“I switched to a TUSQ acoustic guitar saddle and I'm loving it, more sustain and more definition. 

What an upgrade! Thanks Graph Tech!”

Ruby Leigh

"I depend on several Graph Tech products to keep all my instruments sounding great, 

I love Dry'n' Glide as it keeps my hands dry and 

my strings always last twice as long and it leaves my hands smelling nice also! "

Danny Miranda

Blue Oyster Cult

“ The Graph Tech bass Ratio tuners have been 

a game-changer for me! The fine tuning is incredible!

Traveling as much as I do - and in varied climates, 

I no longer have tuning issues on the road!”

Joey Zampella 

Life of Agony

"For me, the ResoMax NV2 with the "String Saver saddles" 

are a lifesaver out on tour. 

Being the only guitar player in the band. I have to 

depend on my equipment to deliver huge full tone 

and have absolutely flawless operation...

That means any string breaking is completely 

unacceptable. Going up there with these bridges, 

gives me that undeniable confidence."

Roger Fisher
