Overview

String Saver Classic Floyd Rose Saddles are superior drop-in replacement saddles for Floyd Rose Original and licensed bridges.

How do they work?
A string resting on a metal saddle binds and locks the string in place. As the string vibrates, it stresses the string on a very specific point producing metal fatigue and then string breakage. Each String Saver saddle is impregnated with Teflon, the slipperiest substance on earth. The Teflon in String Savers eases the grip between the saddle and string, spreading the stress over a greater portion of the string, just enough to drastically reduce string breakage. Teflon is 500% more slippery than graphite and is impregnated throughout the String Saver material, so its lubricating properties will never wear out. For string breakage reduction the difference is dramatic. Strings that last and last, no matter how hard you play&hellipGraph Tech guarantees it!

What do they sound like?
Metal saddles have a pronounced 2kHz treble spike that dominates the tonal spectrum. String Saver Originals have a more balanced tone, with highs, mids and big open lows. You will also notice an increase in sustain by up to 25% over brass saddles and 15% over steel.

    Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Classic Floyd Rose Saddles (Set of 6):

    The saddles are working well. Complaint is that the back part of the 2 piece saddle is not beveled like an original Floyd Rose would be, so the fit is marginal. Some strings are adjusted as far back as possible (G & E on strat). If they ever need to go further the instructions from graph tech is to re-drill and move your bridge posts back. Not good.

    What a HUGE IMPROVEMENT!!

    By Daniel Carter

    from OAK RIDGE, TN

    Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Classic Floyd Rose Saddles (Set of 6):

    I had to do something to improve the tremolo's performance on my new EVH Striped Series Guitar. The guitar plays great just as my two Wolfgangs, but just had something going on with the Floyd Rose. Once I found the replacement saddles with the Graphite/Teflon string contact point, I thought I would give these a try. IM VERY HAPPY I DID!! Not only does the guitar stay in tune, it plays much better and it has a thicker sound. I SHALL BE ORDERING TWO MORE SETS TO UPGRADE THE FLOYD ROSE TREMOLO'S ON MY 2 WOLFGANGS! GREAT IDEA AND GREAT PRODUCT

    The good, The bad, and The ugly

    By Richard Dolson

    from Danbury, CT

    Comments about Graph Tech String Saver Classic Floyd Rose Saddles (Set of 6):

    I would love to rate these with five stars, but... The good. Love the tone and the quality of these saddles. The bad. They are larger (longer) than stock FR saddles. All my strings were able to be intoned, except for one, my low E. The saddle was too long to move back far enough to get spot on. The ugly. I had to file off some of the bottom back edge of the saddle to get it to move back far enough. (Apparently, this is the only solution Graph Tech offers) for the price they are getting, it should actually fit. If I change my strings so that I will need to move all the saddles back, it will be a pain, and I will probably take these saddles off.
