1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    What's better for sound in string saddles?

    Zinc
    Steel?
    Brass?

    or that stuff that Gotoh uses called Restolite (or something like that).....made of aluminum?

    I don't think they change tone in any way, unless they're made of cotton.
    Tusq and graphite are good because self lubricated. Metal is metal as far as I'm concerned, I make the choice based on looks.

    Jazz Ad is right. But even if there was a difference, there would be no better or worse.
