The original luthiers's glue for building and repair!
Ground hide glue creates strong and repairable joints, perfect for new builds and vintage repairs.
Make strong AND repairable bonds
Joints made with hide glue are super strong—it dries rock hard and won't creep like other glues. Hide glue also transfers tone and vibration with ease. Our Ground Hide Glue is high clarity and dries clear, making crack repairs invisible. Fresh hide glue also bonds to itself, making repairs on vintage instruments much easier, no more hours spent scraping and removing stubborn old glue.
Hide glue is perfect for repairs because joints can be cleanly disassembled with heat, moisture, and a hot knife. You can remove or reposition cleats, bridges, braces, and other parts without doing damage.
Easy clean up and no waste
Unlike other glues, it's easy to clean squeeze out with just hot water—even after the glue dries. And, there's no waste! You only make as much as you need and mixed glue can be reheated for later use. The crystals won't dry out like bottled glues—you'll never waste money throwing out expired glue again.
