Hey guys, just a question, which do you find having more sustain, brass saddles or stainless steel saddles?
#2
Generally, (and there are exceptions) the higher-mass a bridge is, the more it tends to transfer vibrations that can lead to added sustain. But the difference between brass and stainless saddles is neither here or there.

I don't know about sustain but I avoid brass saddles because they seem to break strings extremely quickly- I think the softer metal develops burrs more easily.

There are brass saddles out there that have been hard chromed that don't develop burrs at all. That said, I've had brass nuts on several guitars and have never seen them develop burrs...

Any examples? I want to replace the bridge on my EC-1000.
