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.

No Substitute!

There is simply no substitute for these clamps. An customer purchased two 7" and one 5" clamp for me. I found recently that I wished I had another of the 5" clamps, so I ordered one. Glad I did. The adjustable feet on these allows clamping in a variety of situations--not just for bridges. Sturdy enough for medium clamping, but don't tighten too tight--they will bend sideways (permanently). Great for light to medium clamping. I do wish that they were made of a little heavier-duty metal.

Essential Soundhole Clamps

I find the 7" clamps really great. I always use them with the padded cauls to prevent marking. When I first received them I was worried that they looked a little flimsy. However they proved to be perfectly adequate and give plenty of clamping pressure. I may invest in some of the larger sizes soon too.

These clamps are ideal for having to re-glue and clamp down an acoustic guitar bridge. Fit easily in through the sound hole; and using the upper middle screw down insures a level and precise clamping.

Right tool for the job

7" clamps were the right size for re-gluing a classical guitar bridge. I attached 1/2" self adhesive felt pads to the levelers to make them non-scratch.

41 year old guitar returned to playable status

I used the soundhole clamps to flatten the bellied face on my 41 year old guitar. I also used them to reglue the bridge. My old guitar plays like new again. I used the 5" clamps as these were the ones I had. I will be ordering the 7" and 9" to keep on hand for the next repairs. The longer reach and the levelers would have been helpful.

Nice to have a clamp which fits down inside a mandolin for internal repairs. Works great.

Great for most general guitar body repair

This clamp is lightweight yet strong, and it can apply more than enough clamping pressure to get the job done when needed. Some kind of a support is required at the clamping feet, because it is very small and you'll damage parts if you're not careful. I now use them exclusively for bridge glue-ups. The only thing I don't like so much about them is the price...

I recently bought 3 7" soundhole clamps, they were delivered quickly and they work really well, a top piece of equipment.

5" clamps

The clamps made my life so much easier. Thanks to Stew Mac for having the right part for the job. Just like a good auto parts place, can't beat them!
