Details

Softer than bone, and files easily. Micarta is an excellent synthetic bone substitute.

Specified by Martin for nuts and saddles since the 1960s. Ivory in color and a bit softer than bone, it files and sands easily and gives a uniform tone.

a matter of preference...

I gave these a try but I found them too soft and with a tendency to bind the strings. It was an experiment worth trying but this material seems better suited for acoustic guitars than vibrato equipped shredding machines.

They work more easily than bone as advertised but the appearance is dull and not very attractive IMO. I tried one just to see, but will be going back to bone nuts in future.

These nuts are great... but they are not ideal for us Ukulele builders. We waste much of the material. What we really need is a nut that is 1.5 X 0.25 X 0.375 inches.

Get Bone

I tried making a nut of this material, because of the oversized nut slot, which didn't hold bone blanks well, and this micarta blank fitted fine. I must say, i'm confused by all those five stars reviews.

What i noticed from my expirience. This material is SOFT. Which resulted in dull sound of open plain strings. It's also tough, so it doesn't sand or cut well, compared to bone. I'm not gonna use it anymore, waste of time.

picked these up for some nylon string basses I'm making and they work GREAT. The first went on a 41.5 scale slap bass and it's easy to shape and resonates well. Perfect for my purpose. A+++

nice material

Hard but easy to shape and cut, slots finish nicely and are slippery. The color matches well with both rosewood and maple boards. I used to like graphtech nuts but I found a new favorite.

I bought Micarta nuts since I read good reviews on it at Stewmac. I used it for the first time on a quite cheap bass of Jazz model, and could immediately experience much better sound even listening to the acoustic sound without pluging in to an amplifier. I will keep on using these for coming repairs and recommend them to my customers. Easy to shape and slot.
