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.

    Making a saddle for my baritone ukulele

    I was unable to find a saddle or nut for my baritone uke, until I found you guys. Graphtech had a nut that worked perfectly with it. I was impressed, because it's an unusual instrument. Found nothing close anywhere else. The saddle I had to fabricate from the blank I bought from you all, my first attempt at that. Hard to cut with a razor saw, but sanded really well, I was extremely satisfied with what I was able to do. The improvement that the nut and saddle made was amazing. It truly makes the strings sing.

    Such a crucial part after months of wood work

    Started with bleached bone then went to Corian and finally ended up trying this task material. Having never built or made an acoustic guitar or even thought about how they were made naturally…

    “I can make you a better guitar than that”I I said to my daughter.

    Boy, how wrong I was insane ( should be “in saying” but voice recognition heard insane and I think it’s probably the better word) such things. Anyway I succeeded in the build and got lucky with the scale and bridge position not thinking about intonation once while gluing away. Buzzing sound uneven frets I began my education. Started with a bleached bone saddle and once it was over worked I replaced it with Corian. I liked it’s strength and density but it chipped easily and eventually was overworked but it did get me close. I went back online and saw the Tusk saddle and ordered it. I found it to resemble the bone saddle most but it is stronger and more like a mixture of the two materials and I think it’s a winner so far during the shaping to find the best intonation I found the leftover Tusk piece was a good way to get the best location for each strings contact point. I shaped 3 contacts on it one at the front edge one in the middle and one at the far edge basically giving me 3 points to try as far as distance to the nut goes. I tuned the string on each one as the scrap was less than a inch it was easy to slide it to the next point and re tune. I then marked the Saddle accordingly for shaping. Now it’s sound is great…

    Good bridge blank

    I got just what I needed - a slight overthickness was necessary. It took a little more time but the result i excellent. Good material. Thanks, Barry.
