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.

    Sounds great!

    Fantastic! Sounds great. Turned an old, broken cheap guitar into a fun, awesome sounding guitar with the help of a graphtech nut and bridge pins. I have graphtech nuts on all my electrics, they also sound great. Graphtech products have definitely elevated my guitars to a new sonic level.

    Great upgrade

    This is a great saddle. I have a Taylor 814CE that I bought a couple of years ago. I always knew that its action was a bit high, but it sounded so much better than the $200 guitar I'd bought 30 years earlier that I didn't think much of it. Then I played a friend's Martin a few months ago, and his action was super low, but the guitar sounded great, and--much to my surprise--I wasn't buzzing the frets when I played it.

    So I knew that I needed to lower the action on my Taylor, and the nut and neck relief were fine, so the saddle was all that was left. The saddle that came stock was *very* hard to sand down: the material is so hard that I had to first use a chisel; then I used a file; and finally I could do a bit of finishing with a couple of runs of sandpaper. I could at least get to the the proper height, and the frets didn't buzz, but I knew the bottom of the saddle wasn't perfectly level after all that work, so I decided to order the Graph Tech.

    I'd previously replaced the stock nut on my electric guitar with a Graph Tech Tusq XL, so I knew this material would be super easy to sand down to the perfect height. I ordered the string saver model 9200 for my Taylor 814, and the Graph Tech fits the slot perfectly. It takes some trial and error, because if you sand too low you might be able to shim it a bit, but you might also just need to start all over again with a new nut. I spent an hour or so yesterday, got the saddle just the way I wanted, and the action is great.

    I wish I'd…

    Graphtech Acoustic Saddle

    Haven't put this one on yet, but I have put Graphtech Saddles on all my acoustic guitars. There is a noticeable difference in clarity and sustain, compared to micarta, plastic and even bone. I also gave Graptech bridge pins a try and to my surprise and amazement they even provide a modest increase in volume, but very noticeable improvement in sustain. I do my own luthier work (nuts, bridges, saddles, action and intonation, etc). and am very picky about what put on my guitars. I'm also an electrical engineer and did an acoustical oscilloscope traces on the saddles and bridge pins,before and after installation to see if they had the desired effects. I honestly didn't think there would be much difference, but there was. I haven't used Graphtech nuts because I put a Zero fret nut system on all my acoustic guitars. Hopefully, Graphtech will make these systems in the future. But, in MHO, these are great products, thats why I use them.

    Sincerely, Rob H. Pasco, Washington, USA

    Back up saddle for my Rainsong

    The Rainsong is an awesome guitar and comes with this saddle but was never set up properly. I measured the neck and the saddle height and determined that It needed to come down a bit. Shaved it down and now its a much better player.
