Brass saddle bridges

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by francotedescoga, Jul 7, 2012.


  1. Hi!
    I'vebeen checking out the Matt Freeman Squier and the bridge comes with brass saddles. My question is: is there any tonal difference between this and other materials?

    In my experience, brass seems to be a tad bit brighter and acoustically clearer if that makes any sense
     
  3. It sure does, i think it might have the same characteristics of a brass nut, what I didn't know is if the bridge saddles make a perceptible change in the sound. :)

    Yea it's basically like having a brass nut. It will definitely enhance the sound I think. I've found that brass seems to keep the new tone of strings a little longer. Where as graphite seems to bring out less tone. I had a similar problem with my curbow (yes I got this account when I had it). As soon as the strings lost that brand new bright ring, they sounded dead, the curbow had a luthite body and ebanol fretboard. Composites. My Warwick on the other hand has a brass nut and frets and the strings just seem to last much longer. Then again, it's a Warwick ;)
