TonePros Locking Studs

About This Item

Improved stability and sustain!
Retrofit your wraparound bridge or stop tailpiece for better tone and sustain!

The top of each stud tightens down for solid contact. Your bridge or tailpiece will no longer lean, resulting in more stability and improved string energy transfer. Threaded bushings and wrench are included with each set.

Use an 11mm drill bit to install the bushings.

"Real innovations. TonePros studs remove the play inherent in bridges and tailpieces that rest on threaded studs. This ensures especially good coupling."—Dan Erlewine

Solid coupling for better sustain
Improved bridge/tailpiece stability
More precise, lasting intonation
Won't fall off during restringing!

Pricey but makes a difference

(Customer's Reviews)

These are great and all the talk about helping sustain with a locked down tailpiece are correct. I notice a difference and having a locked down tailpiece when changing strings is a bonus!


Nice Improvement

(Customer's Reviews)

These really tighten up a stopbar or wraparound. The wrench is a hassle, but still, better tightness, better tone


Worth the effort

(Customer's Reviews)

These may seem a bit expensive at first blush, but having them in hand is another thing entirely. Very nicely designed, and effective especially in concert with a lightweight tailpiece. I will add my voice to the choir to not over-tighten, and follow the well-written instructions. A worth-while upgrade on my LP Junior.
