High Performance Saddles that Dramatically reduce string breakage
"I like String Saver saddles because they save my strings from breaking...I've been using them now for at least 10 years, if not longer, and I've noticed a significant decrease in string breakage...I hardly ever break strings anymore. I'm so much a fan of the Graph Tech product that I'm actually going to be including them on my Signature Series Stratocaster that's coming out very soon. That's a good testament to the quality of the product".
Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Reprise Recording Artist
String Saver saddles are made with a unique combination of materials made to enhance tone and dramatically reduce string breakage.
How do they work?
A string resting on a metal saddle binds and locks the string in place. As the string vibrates, it stresses the string on a very specific point producing metal fatigue and then string breakage. Each String Saver saddle 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. PTFE is 500% more slippery than graphite and is impregnated throughout the String Saver material, so its lubricating properties will never wear out. For string breakage reduction the difference is dramatic. Strings that last and last, no matter how hard you play...we guarantee it!
What do they sound like?
Metal saddles have a pronounced 2 KHz treble spike that dominates the tonal spectrum. String Saver Originals have a more balanced tone with sizzling highs, full mids, and big open lows. You will also notice an increase in sustain by up to 25% over brass saddles and 15% over steel.
String Saver Originals are made entirely of our String Saver material and as described above will give you a more balanced tone than steel saddles. On first listen, some people believe that the top end has gone away. However, once your ears get used to the new sound, you'll start to hear all the added harmonic content that String Saver saddles reveal. All that's missing is the 2khz spike, but what's added opens up a whole new world of sonic possibilities! Available for Strat, Tele, Floyd Rose, PRS, Wilkinson, Tune-O-Matic bridges, Bass, and even Acoustics.
String Saver Classics are made with our patented String Saver material inserted into a steel saddle and are available in 4 finishes: Gold, Chrome, Black, and brushed Stainless. String Saver Classics will preserve the classic original sound and cosmetics of your guitar while freeing you from the problem of breaking strings. Imagine how you could play if you didn't have to worry about breaking strings! Available for Strat, Tele, PRS, and coming soon Floyd Rose.
