NEW: We now have a bass version to stabilize bass strings, made to accommodate larger diameter bass bridge pins. Specify Standard (treble/tenor) or Bass when ordering.
This wonderful tool by Moondog Manufacturing was developed by Roger Gable, and after using it for about a year now, we would not want to be without one.
Improve wire bends at the bridge without stressing the bridge pins
The Stabilizer tightens the wire bends around the bridge pins, but does so without placing sideways stress on the pins. The tool uses the bridge pin as a guide. While holding the tool so that it stays centered on the pin, the tool is twisted to apply force to the wire, while taking care not to apply sideways force to the bridge pin. The resulting tighter wire bend provides more stability in the wire. On the front (speaking length) side, false beats are often reduced in the process. Watch the video for more details and a demonstration of how the tool works.
