Soundhole Clamps

About This Item

These clamps reach where others can't. Ideal for clamping bridges and braces through a soundhole.

Our popular soundhole clamps feature strong steel frames, light weight and slim profiles for multiple clamping through the soundhole of a classical or steel-string guitar. Ideal for clamping bridges and braces through a soundhole. Available in four lengths. Leveling screw gives extra support for clamping bridges and braces. The 7", 9" and 11" models have a special leveling screw to help support the clamp's weight and prevent unwanted bending of the soundboard.

The shorter clamps give increased clamping coverage at the guitar's bridge and shoulder areas.

Our soundhole clamps also have knurled thumbscrews, height-adjustable jaw screws for clearance of internal braces, and jaw feet that swivel to conform to uneven surfaces (maximum opening is 1-7/8"). Each clamp is 1/2" (12.7mm) wide.

Prevent dents: Check out our Soundhole Clamp Cauls that snap onto the feet of these clamps for a larger clamping footprint, padded surface, and grooves that make it easier to clamp on braces.

Used three five inch clamp to repair a bridge on a gibson acoustic guitar. I cut a diamond shape piece of plywood to clamp from the inside and a small reinforcement piece of wood for the middle part of the bridge. I sanded and blew off the dust. Put on a little titebond. Everything worked out great. Thank you for the quick shipment. Randall

These worked great when gluing the bridge on my tenor ukulele. I used one the steady the bridge while I positioned it at the required 17 3/32 position. Marked the position with tape. Used all three clamps in the final glue up process.

My friend Graham Long of Gladstone Lutherie, Queensland, for whom I bought them, thinks they are the bee's knees.

My first attempt at repairing and regluing an acoustic bridge was a success thanks to the excellent tools and tutorials from StewMac. These clamps arrived early and worked great. I would not have tried this myself if not for the confidence building video tutorials. Thanks!

I like that's it is their and easy to use. Wish it had a bigger Handel it Handel attachment to tighten the clamp down harder than finger tight. First one had rust they replaced free no questions.

Must have for repair shop

These are essential tools of the trade and they have a very stout feel and functionality. The fit and finish is excellent and they blow away my ancient bridge clamps from the 70's made from bar stock. These are much stiffer and when combined with the nylon cauls and felt pads they pay for themselves after the first bridge repair. Also useful for gluing loose or cracked braces.

Bought four of the 5" clamps to attach the bridge base to the first acoustic guitar I've ever built. They worked very well, but I wish I'd bought two 5" clamps and two 7" clamps. It would be good if Stew-Mac added a little to the description in terms of specific uses for the different lengths for buyers trying to decide what they need. I read in one review that they're weak... not the case at all. They're made of steel and certainly strong enough for any application they're intended for. I also used them to clamp the fret board extension and again they worked great. Buy a set of cauls when you order them.. ; )
