Roller String Retainer for Bass

About This Item

Patented rollers help eliminate tuning problems and reduce string breakage.

Mounting screws included.

Pilot holes required: Installing delicate screws such as these into hard maple requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend using a 5/64" bit for the pilot hole before installing these screws. Lubricate the screw threads with cutting lubricant (also wax or a bar of soap) to reduce friction and help them thread properly.

Very good quality

Like most things StuMac sells the quality is there. You may pay a little more but the consistent quality is worth it.
These are a major upgrade from the plate type string retainer. The instrument is easier to tune and keep in tune.

I'm pleased with this product, especially at the price. I have to agree with Neal that the main body would benefit from being cast aluminum - should be a negligible weight impact for improved quality.

I really like the smaller footprint and it is nice looking as well. This is the roller I am using on all of my basses.

Works Great!

I built my own bass from scratch. I originally opted not to have a string retainer. My design has a Kahler Tremolo bridge, Graphtech Tusq nut, Sperzel locking tuners and a Sustainiac Stealth Pro sustainer. Usually a setup like this is found on a guitar like Steve Vai's Ibanez named "Flo." With so much sustain you can really work out the whammy bar but occasionally the G string would pop off the nut. Once I installed the Roller String Retainer that never happened again and the bass stays in tune even after the deepest whammy dives. I'll be putting these on all my future builds. Here's a photo of Billy Sheehan and I at NAMM 2012 talking about the bass.

The best choice of all string retainer there,
the wheel on both sides reduces friction, so you can have smoother operation for an intonation thing on your bass guitars!

Roller string trees are my thing.

I retrofit all my guitars with roller string trees, as I like them cosmetically, and finally I have been able to do the same with my Peavey Milestone bass. Looks good and works as well if not better than the original.

Put on my Fender P Bass. Works and looks awesome! Was not sure at 1st since it was smaller than the factory string tree but after install I love it.
