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.

I needed to be cut the 5" clamps to length to work right.

I had to hacksaw off the outer edge of the curve, about a 1/4" of the metal removed. This was so that the clamping pressure could be applied to the middle of the saddle where I felt was the most important spot for a good snug glue job. I shortened 2 of the 5" clamps and used weights to put pressure on the outer ends of the bridge to get some squeeze out there. They worked nice after being cut shorter. The outer edge of the curve was up against the sound hole on the neck side. And this prevented getting the clamps in the right spot.

You guys did it again !

This is the second set I have bought in about 8 years. This time I bought the 7 inchers. I had the nines before however, they were just a tad or two too long. The 7' s are just right for bridge sets. The secondary clamp is very nice for that extra support. I have to hand to you guys once again ! Love the quality of your products and your Customer Service is second to none ! A faithful customer for years and many more to come ! Thank You !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Works as it should

I used the 7 inch clamp to help glue the far edge of e bridge on a dreadnought acoustic guitar. I found that I could have used a 5 inch clamp, but the 9 inch would have been too long. The leveler helped keep the clamp in place.
