One of the main causes of tuning frustration is string binding at the nut.

Black TUSQ XL nuts alleviate the binding grip of the nut on the string thus reducing friction between the nut material and the string. This is achieved using a nut manufactured from an engineered resonant base material impregnated with Teflon.

As strings move across a Black TUSQ XL nut, they shear open microscopic "capsules" crammed with millions of "ball bearing" type lubricants. For strings, it's like a hardwood floor covered in marbles... strings simply roll back into tune.

Black TUSQ XL nuts come as standard with many major guitar manufacturers including Carvin, Parker Guitars, Brain Moore Custom Guitars, Steinberger, and the Fender Custom Shop for good reason: Black TUSQ XL will keep your guitar in tune longer than graphite, bone plastic or synthetic nuts. In addition, the Black TUSQ XL has crystal clear tone and sustain.

When installing a Black TUSQ XL nut, replace any retainers (string trees) with Black TUSQ XL string retainers to reduce friction and binding at these contact points.
