    1. Gets rid of all the problems - Keeps the good! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Feb 26, 2018

      I have replaced the factory saddles on my Telecaster with these because the string spacing was always a bit off. The intonation was never as good as with these. The sound did not change because my old saddles were also brass. The strings stay where they belong and they look great. This is a fantastic solution.

    2. The Ultimate Saddle 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Feb 1, 2018

      I have tried 1/2 dozen saddles and settled on this style as my favorite. I have tried both both Steel and Brass. I use .011 Strings and they intonate as good as a two string saddle possibly can. They are made very well - no burrs or sharp edges. The rounded bottom set screws do not hang up when adjusting. I do not use the springs as the string tension is more than enough IMO. The Brass does emphasize the mids by taming the highs slightly - but these saddles do not dull the tone. The round groove is very polished and I prefer it over the sharp break edge type which tends to cause tuning issues IMO.

    3. Good quality, well made 4 Star Review

      Posted by on Dec 10, 2017

      This is the second set of these barrel saddles. I put a steel set on another Tele. So I liked them well enough to buy another set. Good quality construction, having 2 lengths of adjustment is nice. They sound nice. I bought them, because they combine the compensated string grooves without the hard edge bevel on the Wilkinson. I was breaking too many strings on the Wilkinsons. So far, no broken strings. The only reason for four stars, instead of five, is that there is a sitar-like overtone on the high E that wasn't there with the old saddles. I isolated it to above the nut, and any light touch silences the overtone. It may be a problem with the roller tree but for now a lightly wrapped piece of leather the trick.
