STRING SAVER SADDLES
NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU PLAY, STRING SAVERS DRAMATICALLY REDUCE STRING BREAKAGE.
Install a set of String Saver saddles and kiss off the string-bustin' blues! String Savers are guaranteed to dramatically reduce string breakage while providing full bodies tone and up to a 25% increase in sustain.
HOW DO THEY WORK?
Metal saddles bind and lock the strings in place (like a vice). String vibration causes metal fatigue on the string resulting in string breakage. String Saver saddles are impregnated with PTFE, a permanent lubricant which allows the strings to move enough to take the stress off the one fixed breaking point. The result is...your strings last and last.
WHAT DO THEY SOUND LIKE?
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! They don’t have the 2K spike of a metal saddle which lets all the other highs, mids and lows come through. It opens up a whole new palette of tones and possibilities for your playing! Used by top players around the world including Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Dick Dale, Tim Reynolds, Randy Bachman, and many more…
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.
WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?
"I don't have time for wussy saddles! I need string saddles that can take it! Not get caught up and heat up strings. I wouldn't think of playing "the Beast" without String Saver saddles, and you can take that to the bank!" Dick Dale - King of Surf Guitar
