They work

They work. easy to install and if you are making your own bridges out of bone, it is really easy to get power to the strings by routing a small groove between each one and wrapping a wire around each ferrule.

bass string ferrules

They fit perfect with a 3/8 ths bit.A drop of glue and they were ready to go.Fast service and quality parts are the norm for Stew-Mac.I have never had a problem with anything I ever bought from them over the years.If you want to increase sustain and punch,modify your bass for string thru.I used them on a 1994 Gibson Thunderbird bass.Also I put on a Hipshot Supertone bass bridge to replace the stock 3-point Gibson bridge.Rock on!!

Does the job well.

I am a beginning luthier and I wanted to alter the sound of my Mexican Fender Jazz Bass as much as I could by feeding the strings though the body. These ferrules gave me what I was looking for.

The adjustments to my bass may be far from perfect, but Stew-Mac delivered, as always. I'm happy with these ferrules. They aren't as large as the ones on American-made Fender basses that have string-through bodies, but they are the right size to be tasteful and functional.

Ferrules are Ferrules

Were a bit hard to find a stock bit so that they weren't loose. Still put a drop of glue to secure them.

Every bass should have these

These are great ferrules, perfect match for American Fender style string through ferrules.
I build high end customs and do lots of upgrades/hot-rodding for my clients. One of the first things I suggest to a client wanting better sustain and tone is a bridge upgrade and STRING THROUGH MODIFICATION. This is where the "piano tones" come from. Every bass I have (8) are string through, and I've performed this mod on 50 or more basses with great results.
