Large Notch is recommended for A, E, & B Strings for 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 String basses.
These are a perfect solution for those wanting to either reduce weight, a standard bridges footprint or set your own string spacing and scale length as needed on fanned fret applications.Individual placement of each bridge allows for perfect side-to-side string and length spacing.
Two loading options are possible.
- String Through the Body via a coupling bolt.
- Top Load via quick release drop slot.
Through body lends itself to a more punchy, and percussive attack where the top load results in a more traditional tone.Hipshots patented through-bolt attachment actually compresses the bridge against the wood, making this bridge an integral part of your bass guitar. The result? The truest tones possible! Individual bridge components virtually eliminate string cross-talk (excellent for piezo/midi applications) while the maximum coupling enhances bite and sustain.
A Few Notes on Hipshot Triple Lockdown Bridges:
- The small removable 'black block' string height adjustment saddle can come with two different sizes of string notches (large and small), but the size of every other component of the bridge remains exactly the same.
- The stock 'string tubes' of this bridge are appropriate for bodies close to 1-3/4" thickness, shorter string tubes for thinner basses close to 1-1/2" thickness available upon request.
