What are the String Saver and TUSQ Materials in Saddles?

String Saver Saddles

String Saver saddles are made with a unique combination of materials made to enhance tone and dramatically reduce string breakage. Each saddle is permanently lubricated.

Lubrication formula in String Savers eases the grip between the saddle and string, spreading the stress over a greater portion of the string, just enough to drastically reduce string breakage.

Our patented String Saver Originals are made entirely of our String Saver material and give you a very balanced tone across the spectrum. People who were breaking one or two strings a night have contacted us after using String Savers and are amazed that they go weeks and months without breaking a string!

String Saver Classics are made with an extremely high quality steel saddle with our patented String Saver material inserted in the string ramp. String Saver Classics preserve the classic look of a metal saddles while freeing you from the problem of breaking strings.

TUSQ Saddles

TUSQ Saddles have a rich tone without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone, and other natural materials. Bone and ivory have hard and soft spots (grain) throughout each piece, hampering the consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top. TUSQ saddles are designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from the string to the guitar body.

    Replaced saddle.

    The length was perfect, the height was a little high, but that's what I wanted for my own adjustment. Took awhile to sand thickness down to fit my bridge. .128 to .098 , anyway I got it installed. Still a little high but I will correct that later. The factory saddle on a martin sc13e measures .097. My fault for not measuring beforehand.

    Great saddle

    This is the factory saddle on my Emerald. It's great! I ordered a spare to carry with me when I travel. You never know when you'll need it and they don't take up much space.

    This saddle was very easy to sand to the right size, fits nicely in the guitar, and - so far - seems to have solve my problem with breaking strings (along with switching to Ernie Ball Paradigms). Very happy at the moment!

    Very happy

    I thought about giving it only four stars because it didn’t miraculously make me a virtuoso player!

    But seriously, great company to deal with and I’m completely happy with my new saddle.
