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.

9" and 11"  clamps with leveler

By

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.

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

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 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.
