Behlen Ground Hide Glue

I really like this product. I only mix small amounts for what ever job I need it for. Excellent strength. Great for sound board cracks to cello necks.

I was quite impressed with the hold and drying time of the glue. It worked very well on my old VIRZI violin and was very impressed with it's performance. I will buy this product next time I am in need of Hide Glue.

far stronger than titebond

i havent used it to glue my guitar together yet but i did conduct a test ... i simply made a batch of hide glue in a jar and let it dry to a jelly-like consistency and cut out a piece and placed it on a paper plate to dry then i used the hide glue remaining in the jar as a mold and i poured titebond in thus creating a clump of titebond just like the clump of hide glue ... then i took out the clump of titebond to dry and when both pieces were all cured and dry i made attempts at breaking them ... the titebond broke very easily and as if it had dried into a very flimsy plastic which i broke into about ten small pieces by hand alone ... but the hide glue was unbreakable by hand and required a vice-grip and pliers to break.

if you ever have choice always choose hide glue ... only downside is it shrinks a bit more than titebond but not by much and this is definately not a problem if your guitars neck joint or repair site is well fitted

Best Glue for Fine Instruments

I've always preferred hide glue for wood projects, but I've experimented with most of the other glues on the market.

Hide glue is simply the best for working on instruments. It sets fast, strong and clear. It seems to crystalize in a way that modern resin glues do not. I believe that this contributes to the tone and resonance of a good guitar.

Behlen's Hide Glue is consistent, and is the best ground hide glue I've come across and the price is more than reasonable. Give it a shot!

works like magic

A friend just bought an ibenez acustic and one of her students cracked the neck at the head. I took it home and was going to try some slow curing epoxy, then i went to your archives and found a crack repair just like the one i was facing. So i followed the repair in your archive and ordered some hide glue. The repair went perfect. You can't tell there was ever a crack. The ooze wiped right off with a damp rag. I felt guilty it was so easy.

Your information you provide for free is second to none and so you will always have my business.
