Ukulele Bone Bridge Saddle Ukulele Bone Bridge Saddle Ref: ukebonebr

The bridge saddle of the ukulele conveys the vibrations from the string to the top of the instrument where the sound is amplified. It is therefore important that it is made of a material that conveys the vibrations efficiently.
Bone is one of the most used materials to obtain outstanding results.

If you are ordering a new ukulele from us, select this product as well and we will professionally fit and supply the bone bridge. Some high end ukulele's already come with a bone or TUSQ bridge - if unsure, please contact us for more information on any particular ukulele.

Ukulele TUSQ Bridge Saddle Ukulele TUSQ Bridge Saddle Ref: uketusqbr

The bridge saddle of the ukulele conveys the vibrations from the string to the top of the instrument where the sound is amplified. It is therefore important that it is made of a material that conveys the vibrations efficiently.

TUSQ is a man made material, designed specifically to do just that. It is similar to bone in that it is very dense and hard. It is used by many top luthiors and is often used instead of bone. The results are slightly different to a ukulele with a bone saddle, but are equally impressive. Some ukulele players will have a preference for bone, other ukulele players for TUSQ.

If you are ordering a new ukulele from us, select this product as well and we will professionally fit and supply the TUSQ bridge. Some high end ukulele's already come with a bone or TUSQ bridge - if unsure, please contact us for more information on any particular ukulele.

Left Handed Ukulele Conversion

Most (but not all) ukulele's can easily be converted to Left Handed.
Ukulele's with a cutaway for example, can not be converted to left hand.

In it's simplest form, it is just a matter of changing the strings round and making sure the top nut is correct. (Sometimes a set of new strings is necessary)
This will give the player a left Handed Ukulele that plays properly.
It can also be easily converted back to a Right Handed Ukulele as and when required.

The only thing that left hand ukulele players will not get with this simple conversion , is the marker dots on the side of the ukulele fingerboard will still be on the side for a right handed player.
In other words, when the ukulele is held left handed, the marker dots are not seen by the player.

New marker dots can be fitted to the other side of the fingerboard, so that the ukulele now has dots on both sides of the fingerboard. Some ukulele players will find this useful, whilst for other ukulele players, it will not make a difference.

Before getting your ukulele converted to left hand, consider carefully if Left Handed is necessary and appropriate for you.
It is worth knowing that many left handed people play their ukulele right handed.

The conversion covers changing the strings round and making sure the top nut is correct as well as fitting marker dots to the other side of the fingerboard. (the original marker dots for a right handed ukulele player will be left in place so there will be marker dots on both sides of the fingerboard)

We can usually re-fit existing strings, but sometimes this is not possible so a new set might be required at additional cost.
