Saddle/Nut Comparison - Sotos Bakas

Postby SotosOpeth » Thu Sep 29, 2016 9:28 am

Hello! :)

I thought to share with you a tone comparison I did on saddles and nuts made by different materials.
Every saddle/nut material has a different sound, some are highlighting more the high frequencies, or low ones, have more/less sustain etc.They all sound different and depending on the sound of your instrument and the sound you are looking for as well I hope it will help you to choose your favourite one.

Please use headphones or studio monitors for more detail on the differences.

The guitar I am playing is a custom made Pellerin guitar with Adirondack top/East Indian Rosewood b&s made by luthier Michel Pellerin.

Please feel free to share this comparison with any string instrument players that might be interested. Much appreciated!

Composed, recorded, mixed and mastered by me at my home studio in Hilversum, Netherlands.

Have a great day guys and thank you so much for checking the comparison!
Hope it helps!

Sotos - real interesting comparison! Have you ever tried it with nylon strings?
Thanks

Hey Steve!
Thank you for checking the comparison, really glad you find it interesting.

Unfortunately I haven't tried with nylon strings but I guess the differences will be the same but in a more mid frequency spectrum.As using a pick is going to have same differences but in a higher frequency spectrum. :)
