No matter what type of stringed instrument you have, the nut is one of the most important parts of the overall performance, playability and tone of your instrument. It is amazing the effect of upgrading this small part will have on the health of your instrument. When nuts are worn out or poorly constructed, problems such as string buzz, fretting out and tuning performance are just a matter of time.
Graph Tech precision molds and engineers its nuts to create the most consistent tone, string balance as well as precise string spacing to create the perfect piece for your instrument.
NuBone is a derivative of TUSQ and has a lot of the same tonal characteristics. Like all Graph Tech materials, it is completely consistent from piece to piece and within each piece. NuBone has a very similar tone to TUSQ, not quite the volume or the hardness of TUSQ but at half the cost.
