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.

    Easy Install - Great Tone

    Ordered this as replacement for my Gibson J-45 Studio Rosewood. Required the 16” radius which was not available from my typical retailer, so I ordered direct and it arrived quicker than I expected.

    Install was also quicker than I expected. Right fit and sounds great!

    Def hear the difference

    Install a 16" radius compensated saddle on a 1884 Sigma cut away (still owned by Martin then). Was my first new guitar purchase and it's in mint condition. The original saddle was plastic and the bridge slot needed to be widened by 1 mm to get the new saddle in. Once the new saddle was sized for string height, heard the difference immediately: more clarity from the low end, mid range popped more and the sustain on all the strings was night and day. Outstanding product Graphteck!
