Graph Tech Black TusqXL PT-9125-00

March 8, 2015

I was looking for saddles to be used with the Carlos Amplification VIP Doble Pickup System and came upon the GraphTech Black TuskXL PT-9125-00 you can order them from hear GraphTech TusqXL or on eBay.  I shaped the saddle using my Acoustic 6 Saddle tool from Jearld Rohm and a belt& disk sander.  Then I shaped the saddle with regular files to do the compensation and correct string plament.  The picture below is the saddle before sanding and shaping the last pic is the final shape.  I think it works very well and with the pickup sounding very good.  It transmits very well and I thinks it’s an added benifit to string trasmission to the pickup it gives a more woody tone to what the coaxial transmits.  Less midrange pezo sound.  The saddle is said to be “permanently lubricated.   Which increases richer harmonic content and increases tuning stability. ” “The major cause of tuning frustration is when the string binds at the nut/saddle.  Precision engineered with Teflon the slipperiest substance on earth, Black Tusk XL reduces this friction, increasing tuning stability. Based on the highly resonant TUSQ formula, and permanently lubricated throughout  you can play aggressively… Designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently, Black Tusq XL increases harmonic content resulting in crisp highs and big open lows.” GraphTech Packaging
