"Man, I thought I’d heard everything, but, these Titanium Saddles™ are over the top."
-- Andy Brauer
"I had a chance to evaluate the performance of the new Titanium Saddles™ on my Heritage Les Paul (my #1 axe!). I used the guitar all week extensively in the recording studio and in live rehearsals. The adjective that fits best is DEFINITION. Increased sensitivity and stability are very apparent and vibration and sustain have been taken to the limit. With all the DeTemple hybrid modifications my guitar has become insanely intense. I think I will need to start carrying heart medication to deal with the rush! Thanks for the cool concept in engineering these saddles."
-- Paul “Shelly” Schifanelli
"I noticed immediately the advantages of the titanium bridge saddles as soon as I cranked my guitar up and let it scream. Definition, sustain and clarity are second to none and the best I have ever experienced in my whole playing life, period. In the studio the sensitivity is most noticeable and my instrument was literally alive, not to just myself, but to the producer and technicians. I have these saddles on both my Les Paul and my Stratocaster and wonder how I ever did without them."
-- Paul “Schelly” Schifanelli
"My old ’55 Tele® sounds better than ever! With your Titanium Saddles™ the notes are more focused (the purity of tone was even evident to my strobe tuner)… and the intonation seems purer. There is much more clarity in the low strings and they are now in better balance with the high strings. It used to be that my high strings were almost harshly bright, but the new saddles took the harshness away and give a clear, high chime sound."
-- Russ Reiser
"I will never own another guitar that doesn't have Titanium Saddles™! unless you discover something better. It is just plain more musical in all aspects. thanks for helping me with the 'tone jones.'"
-- Roger Lund
"These Titanium Saddles™ on my humbucker McNaught are there for GOOD!"
-- Roger Lund
"The Titanium Saddles™ are terrific. I A/B’d with another Tele that has the Danny Gatton brass saddles. Yours sound clearer and sustain longer. It’s not a huge difference -- which is good. But the difference it makes is worth every penny. I really like them. I get to gig tonight. I know I’ll be feeling good with that guitar. Great product for sure."
-- Joe Bac
"I just wanted to say that my guitar has never sounded better since you put your Strat SweetSpot™ Pickups and the Titanium Saddles™ on it. The pickups are incredibly warm and even and a very true tone. The guitar has come alive. I can’t wait to put the pickups and bridge saddles on my Tele."
-- Chris Pinnick
"It’s been a few weeks since I got the Titanium Saddles™ and the piece of Mastodon nut material from you for my Tele. Just want you to know that I got the nut cut and installed on the Tele. What a difference in both the saddles and the nut. The guitar just chimes for days. I love it. Thanks for being in the biz and making that stuff available."
-- Joe Bac
"Those Titanium Saddles™ for Telecaster I got from you a couple of months ago are the best upgrade I have ever made to a guitar. The best way to describe it is, they make other guitars sound irrelevant. Hyper Twang!"
-- Mark Etheredge
"I found time to check out the quality and effect of your Titanium Saddles™ last week. I’m REALLY enthusiastic about these little parts that improve the sound of a good Strat or Tele at least 30%. But of course I don’t need to tell you about this effect of your wonderful product. I installed your saddles in the Strats of three important customers of my store. The reaction of these customers is always was the same -- they can't believe the extreme effect of the saddles."
-- Tommy Metz
"Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that I installed the Titanium Saddles™ using your method and it worked great. I had the guitar back up and running in about 20 minutes, and the best part was that by changing the saddles one string pair at a time I was able to really hear the difference between brass and titanium. The guitar is way more alive and somehow sounds more in focus. The best part is that I feel it in my belly way more when I'm playing in the middle of the neck -- and to me, that's where all the good stuff lives on a guitar."
-- Jeff Sutton
"I just played a gig with the new Titanium Trem Block™ that you installed in my DeTemple ’56™. I would have never believed that you could improve on the sound and playability of one of your masterpiece guitars, but you have. I think the only thing I can say is that it’s insane!!! I didn’t know what to expect but when I plugged in, turned the amp on, and strung a chord it felt like I was playing a 9’ grand piano. The clarity and focus of each note was ten fold. I don’t know what other new ideas you have in mind for your guitars but pleeeease keep me up to date. Insane!!!!"
-- Tony Galla
"The conclusion on the Titanium Saddles™ on my ’93 historic reissue Les Paul, is that the sustaining ability and tonal responses are absolutely stunning. The improvement is awesome. I owe you a dinner sometime for sure. In showing the Les Paul to a few people, they were all impressed to great degree. At some point I think that you will be getting some calls from these guys, but I’ll give you a heads-up in time to provide you with warning. On your pickups, I’ll be performing the tests and measurements this coming week. As the data is compiled, I’ll send it all to you. The test bed guitar will be one my ’64 Strats. This guitar is getting the Titanium Saddles™ and trem block as well. So this should be very interesting."
-- Alexander Dumble
"P.S. I’ll try to get Dean Parks to finally install his Titanium Saddles™ on one of his Tune-O-Matic Gibsons. He emailed that he has the saddles but just can’t decide which guitar to use for the installation. He is missing out big time on tones. My Les Paul is dripping tones through the roof!
"P.S.S. I’d like to get another set of Titanium Saddles™ for my ES-335. Please let me know if/when you have another set. I believe that there is a newer version of the ABR-1 on it. I’ll make sure though.
"I have been using my ’56 a lot since I put on the Titanium Trem Block™. I was really surprised how much better it sounds than the stock one. My previous thought was that a heavier block would resonate better."
-- Al Vontz
"A good friend of mine, Jon Pringle from Warrensburg, Missouri bought a set of your SweetSpot™ Pickups, along with the Titanium Saddles™. He raves about them. In fact, when I picked up his ’62 reissue Strat I couldn’t put it down! That was THE Strat sound I’d always been looking for."
-- Robert “B.B.” Wiggs
"I finally installed those Titanium Saddles™ that I bought, and I’ve only got seven things to say to you:
"Say, wait a minute. That means I'm going to have to replace all the saddles on everything I own. That's $115 times... well, it’s a bunch.
"So, I’ve got seven more things to say:
"Oh well, things could be worse."
-- Bob Dragich
"Greetings from Brussels. I put the Titanium Trem Assembly™ into my back-up Stratocaster and it feels great from the weight standpoint, which has got to be a good thing! Again, I don’t know yet what it does sonically, but I’d be inclined to fit it into the number one guitar now, because it feels so good. Your instruments look beautiful -- I hope we can say hello when we get to the US."
