bone vs tusq saddle on your bird


Recommended Posts

What tonal differences do you hear between a bone and tusq saddle on your Hummingbird? I am thinking of doing an experiment while I try to set up and lower the action a tad on my Hummingbird. I have about 7 saddles lying around.


i prefer the bone and changed mine. i think it sounds a bit more chimey and alive, but i also changed the pins the saddle and the strings at the same time, so it may have been the combination. plus the bone i use is sort of a mottled darker unbleached variety, and looks so good i would probably have changed it anyway. share your experiment
