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.

Great Customer Service

By

Verified Buyer


I bought 3 of the 5" Sound Hole clamps for Acoustic Guitar. One of them was faulty & was replaced in a very timely fashion without requiring a return of the defective one. In other words, they took my word for it. I completely respect that. I am a "Just starting up" repair shop, so I will definitely be a repeat / return customer as I am going to need lots of tools.

Reaches far-away spots, but not too far

The 5 inch clamp was perfect for areas just out of reach of standard clamps. Anything deeper would have overshot the area of concern.

Worked as they are supposed to. Bridge has held up in the weeks passed. Didnt use a caul. Just 3 clamps and cardboard underneath top only.

Sound hole clamps and customer service.

I use these clamps routinely for bridge resets. This time I needed the next size smaller. I had an amazingly good experience with StewMac Customer Service. By mistake (my mistake!) I ordered the wrong size. Meanwhile my client is waiting. When the clamps arrived, I discovered I had ordered the wrong size. I called customer service and explained my situation. I asked if he could send 4 clamps the right size before he received back from me the ones I'd ordered in error. He said, to my surprise, yes they could do that. They arrived the next day. Happy client, happy ending. Thank you StewMac.

These clamps were the perfect thing I needed to re-glue a bridge on a Classical guitar. The clamps really 'held-it-together'!

9" and 11"  clamps with leveler

I used these braces to clamp the cracked and loose ends of the second and third ladder braces inside an old Harmony guitar. Couldn't get my hand in the soundhole far enough to manipulate a jack screw and had to apply the glue with a pallet knife "blind", but with a light and a mirror strip could easily see to apply these clamps afterward.

Perfect for classical guitar

Went to glue on the bridge on my just finished classical. Drafts! The SM clamps that have worked great on my steel strings were too short. 2 days later, my SM 7 inch clamps arrived. Perfect fit. They are also very light. Used fish glue and it seems to be holding as good as hide glue. Steve Clarke

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
