Tube Spring Boogie

By Bob Rainey from Fernandina Beach, FL
(Customer's Reviews) Thursday, March 20, 2014

I use this tubing along with the two different metal springs S-M sells when I need to deal differently with space restrictions under my pickguards. This stuff has the added advantage of not making any noise, mechanical or harmonic, when installed.

Better than springs

Especially on older pickups. They haelp eliminate that annoying hum.

I found that this product is also great to use as a stop on drill bits. Can be cut to the required length and slid onto small diameter bits, leaving the desired cutting portion exposed. Beats having pieces of tape flapping around and around.

just what I needed

Get out the grease!

Make sure you grease the inside and both ends to make adjusting your pickups easier and be accurate with your lengths as it doesn't compress like a single coil spring. Is ideal for humbuckers as holds them nice and steady. Cheap too! Also holds your screws in place ready for pickups.

Good product

I was in the middle of my strat re-nut and just happened to notice the pickup tubing had that nasty old rubber discoloration. Cheap enough to just "add to the order" and I didn't have any problems with fitment.

Trem springs silencer

By Loren from Spain
(Customer's Reviews) Saturday, September 15, 2012

This tubing has the exact diameter to get into the springs of my Ibanez edge trem. Works like a charm. In fact this thing has made the springs quieter than a real noiseless springs set that i have,(I think it gives a very little acoustic boost too)

Instead of petroleum jelly, I used bar soap to lube the threads before slipping the tubing over, and that worked well. I used the Tele bridge screws for my Dimarzio Virtual Vintage/Area pickups (they have tall bobbins because of the stacked design). This solved my pickup wobble problems.

Get a grip guys....c'mon....

The tubing is not too tight, its supposed to be tight, just put a little vaseline on your screw and it'll slide right in. Tubing that is too loose compresses very poorly and you may get pickups that flop around, eh?

Inside diameter too small for both my Stratocaster and Telecaster pickup screws. Completely useless.
