String Break Angle For Tom

Recommended Posts

I searched for this one, but got nothing. I'm trying to find out the correct string break angle for a Tune o matic bridge. I'm trying to decide whether to recess both the bridge and stop tailpiece, or recess the bridge and string through. Leaning toward string through for sustain reasons, but still need to know the angle. Thanks in advance.

there is no definite answer to your question, I will say it is IMO a matter of taste. People use it with the strings on the front or wraped around, so there is no definate angle. As long as you have enough tension to hold the strings in place when you bend (and propertly cut saddles) you won't have any problem.
