"KTS titanium saddles have been an integral part of my tone for over 10 years. They are on my number 1 guitar and will never come off. If you want tone, performance and tuning stability KTS is the only way to go!" ―Josh Smith

King Solomon Hicks
"You can really hear and feel the difference when you use a KTS bridge. It added that special sound I was looking for in my guitar."
The King uses the KTS-PR-01EP bridge set.
“My first impressions are: longer sustain, greater accuracy, intonation is sharper, flexibility is greater without change. The most important advantage of Titanium saddles is greater service from the instrument that is using them. There is also a closer relationship to the artist’s needs—sustain, intonation, etc.”
" I can't believe the difference... The tone upgrade is instantly audible even without plugging my guitar into an amp! Sustain and clarity is vastly improved. Thank you KTS!!! "
"These Titanium bridge pieces are the BOMB!! Try them for yourself"
"I've found a remarkable tone improvement with the KTS bridge saddles. They dramatically increase sustain and clarity on all my Les Pauls and Fender Stratocasters. I also haven’t broken a single string on the guitars that have these bridge saddles. I'm putting them on all my guitars at this time. They’re GREAT!!!!!"
"The bridge saddles are working out great! I can still hear the difference in the brightness and rich overtones with the Titanium saddles. Strings are not breaking either. Usually I always break some after long nights of playing but none so far. Really happy with the way the saddles are responding."
"I put a set of PR-11s on my Fender '62 reissue and the difference in tone was subtle at first but over time I have found that I have starting favoring that guitar in many more situations than I had previously. The tone is bigger, more defined, and I feel like the tone of the strings is translating more directly to the amp. The KTS saddles are like a secret weapon!"
Guitarist working with New Age artist Kitaro, as well as with the hard rock acts Drill and Naked Sun, and is currently touring with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra
"KTS parts on my guitars mean more overall tone, natural harmonics and quicker ultra-responsive attack. The guitars sound much more alive, amplified, solid, enhanced with every note ringing with new definition."
London-Madrid based guitarist and engineer. Working with Orange Amplifiers, Manson Guitars, Cort Guitars, Eventide, T-REX and many more. He's also musical director at TOX!C PROD, and senior designer at MASSIVE UNITY and TAEfx pedals. Picked to join "We Will Rock You" musical show created by Queen. Using KTS PR-17 saddles on his Manson and Cort guitars.
"I originally bought a set of titanium saddles for my 1960 Strat because I was tired of breaking strings every twenty minutes with the steel ones. What I didn't expect was the great tone I got from them. Much better clarity, definition and sustain without losing the original characteristics of the vintage guitar itself. They are on all my guitars now and I couldn't be happier."
Shane Theriot"Upgrading my guitars with KTS saddles has made a HUGE improvement in my sound. It allows me the freedom to not worry about things like sustain and intonation so I can just focus on playing music- you can feel the quality as well as hear it I highly recommend this product!"
"A great guitar sound is a combination of many small elements. The pick, wire, pickups...these are all important things but now I've learned that there is one more EXTREMELY important element....The bridge saddles. KTS saddles have really changed my sound and I consider myself lucky to have found them. A simple product that makes it easier to play music. What more could you ask for?"
"I do like the titanium saddles, I've been using them on my Rob Engel guitar for a couple of months now. I was afraid to change the saddles because the guitar sounded great as it was but it is even better. I......t seems to have a clearer, more focused sound to me. Great product."
"I have now tried my relic strat with your bridgeparts in the studio as well as on a few gigs and. I must say that they really make a difference! There has been a lot of hype about titanium parts etc. I didn't really pay any attention to it. Now I wish I would have done so earlier! I haven't yet broken a single string on my Strat and there definitely is a change in the tone for the better! I'm changing to KTS parts on my Les Pauls too!"
"I am very happy with these Titanium saddles. I first tried them out on my Les Paul Custom. It gave the guitar more definition and presence. The neck humbucker was less muddy sounding, and the bridge humbucker was less harsh. I then tried the KTS bridge on my Les Paul Sunburst Standard. (I had overwound pickups on this guitar because it originally had a weak or generic sound to it) When I put the KTS bridge on it, the guitar came alive. I have since reinstalled the lower output PAF style pickups I had it in it before, (they was no need for the overwound pickups anymore) and I have not stopped playing it! Again I could hear the clarity in the neck humbucker and no harshness in the bridge humbucker. The guitar reacts more to how hard or soft I pick. More touch sensitive, Now the only problem I have, is that my LP Custom doesn't sound as good anymore! I would love to outfit all my ABR bridge (Gibson) guitars with the Titanium Saddles, it's a great improvement in tone. "
"The sustain and natural harmonics that these simple little titanium inserts emit is uncanny. Not only do they sound great, but thanks their ultra-responsive characteristics I can shred at top speeds with less effort."
"With titanium saddles notes are clearer, fatter, more defined. You hear more of everything. More attack, more of your fingers. Even my V.U. meter on my tuner was evidence. The needle just sat in one position after I installed these saddles. No fluttering like before. I even "pro-tooled" before and after installing the saddles. the high end was much thicker with a crisper attack. Any change takes a while to get used too if you are constantly searching for "THE" tone. Titanium parts are an evolution, not too far from tradition, that really make a difference."
Alexander Beyrodt"Using the KTS PR-11 on my strat is giving me more overall ton and natural harmonics. The guitar sounds more alive.....has more to give. It made me to write 4 songs in 20 minutes right ater I installed it on my strat, holy hell! Not only the guitar feels better and has more twang, it also inspires me and that is something I am always looking for....Inspiration. Thanks KTS!"
