Steel saddle

Recommended Posts

I think it will be too bright. Try an aluminum one if the steel doesn't work out. It won't be very easy to make from steel , but it's easy with aluminum. Silver is supposed to sound good on some acoustics. You'd have to have someone make a cast silver saddle. I doubt it's worth that.

Brass is probably better sounding for steel on an acoustic. Probably like aluminum, but different sounding.

Thanks for the advices. I made a steel one and its sound was somehow weak but quite tinkling though, the top doesn't resonate too good, maybe the vibration couldn't transmit well between the steel and the rosewood bridge. Also I didn't hear any noticable changes in sustain. I'll try out the brass and the silver ones too, I'm getting curious. Stag-horn sounds awesome! :D
