Machined from quality aircraft aluminum to ensure light weight and high strength. Unique top load slot design allows for quick and easy stringing. You no longer have to feed your strings through the retainer and chance scratching your instrument's head stock or damaging your string windings. These retainers assure proper string tension for tone, sustain and playability. Their super light weight keeps your bass balanced!
These string retainers are great. I needed to create additional tension on the bottom two stings of my fretless bass as they were continuing to pop out of the nut whenever I was hitting the strings with some gusto. After installing one of the retainers I no longer have the problem.
