Schaller 3D-5: patented 5-string bass bridge
- The roller bridge saddles reliably minimize string breakage while maintaining intonation and tuning stability.
- 3-dimensional adjustment of string height, intonation and string spacing (with roller bridge saddles).
- String rests with shafts and rollers made of solid and uncoated Pure Sound brass for excellent sound transmission.
- The individual string intonation is set by adjusting the string saddles.
- Heavy and precise construction for extra long sustain.
- Complete with 3 mm spacer.
- The guitar or bass strings lie on low-friction roller saddles which prevent the strings from breaking.
- The roll widths are optimized for the standard mood B-E-A-D-G.
Advantages of Pure Sound brass
- Due to its softness, brass is an ideal saddle material and offers sufficient resistance to the strings.
- Uncoated brass saddles (plain or notched) can be easily customized by the guitar maker with a saddle file for smooth transitions.
- Form-fit support of the components in conjunction with improved string contact thus supports playability, intonation and sustain.
- String spacing (E-A): 65 - 70 mm
- String spacing individual (neigboring strings): 16 - 17.5 mm
- String radius: adjustable from 7" - 20"
- Minimal G/d string height above body: 12 mm
- Height adjustment: 5 mm
- Maximum string gauge: 0.135
- Weight: 212 gram, 274 gram with accessories
- Conversion for left-handed: Unscrew the string saddles except for the middle one and screw them back on exactly in a mirror image. Then the different rollers for the different strings are in the correct position again.
- Height adjustment screw: grub screw with conical point with hexagon socket M3 x 8
