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 has the String Saver which is impregnated with PTFE, the slipperiest substance on earth.

The PTFE 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.

    Had to sand lightly to fit bridge slot and sand significantly more to lower the action of my guitar.

    Excellent product

    It Works!

    I çonverted a new Gretsch Jim Dandy to lefty using this saddle and a Tusq lefty nut. The nut wasn't tall enough so I shimmed it. The saddle is very tall but good enough for Christmas morning for my 6 year old grandson. Now rhat the nut is sorted I'll trim the saddle down. Even with the saddle being very high at the moment (probably 8mm string height at 12th fret) I can tell the compensation is good: every string is exactly 7c sharp at the 12th fret.
