Inventor Roland Hannes took another step towards further optimizing the acoustic responsiveness. While conventional guitar bridges feed all six strings via a common carrier, be it a Tune-O-Matic bridge or bridges with an integrated base plate, Schaller’s Hannes® bridge follows a new logic. Please open the website on a larger device to use the quick order functionality. At the same time, the use of Teflon means that the bridge offers a high degree of tuning stability. The saddles have a large surface area resting on the guitar's body, and are separated from one another by the bridge's construction. The “String Saver” string bridge’s lower friction counters the much feared risk of broken strings very effectively. This physical difference in the saddle, compared to all other available saddles on the market manifests itself in a significant increase in dynamic response that can be heard and felt. The bridge is low-maintenance and comfortable to play. Darren announced he was going to start making seven string versions as an option for the guitars he was building and selling. Flatmount bridge with adjustable height, intonation and string spacing (roller bridge saddles) The roller bridge saddles reliably minimize string breakage while maintaining intonation and tuning stability. The saddles have a large surface area resting on the guitar's body, and are separated from one another by the bridge's construction. Genuine Schaller Hannes 6-String Fixed Bridge, Chrome, Made in GermanyManufacturers Part Number : 12010200, This is Schaller's premium fixed bridge. 12. With this, Schaller’s Hannes® bridge is an innovation you can truly hear. Here, too, Schaller’s Hannes® bridge offers a true innovation: Despite being individually adjustable for height and length (octave clarity), the couplers lie flat and stable on the guitar surface and thus ensure the optimal transfer of the entire vibration spectrum to the instrument. They are made of a special compound material containing Teflon, which is a highly effective lubricant (one of the most effective in the world), and it dramatically reduces saddle-related string breakage since no sharp edges can form on the saddles due to wear. This physical difference gives a significant increase in dynamic response. Please open the website on a larger device to use the quick order functionality. He addressed the issue of mass – that means the reduction of the vibratory mass of the bridge unit. It lies directly on the guitar surface and is free of intermediate elements such as stud screws, threaded studs or metal plates. It contains many innovations -, This new high-tech guitar bridge was developed over a number of years by Roland Hannes, a French inventor now living in California.

It is easily dismantled for cleaning and needs only a small perforated rail on the rear of the body to fix the ball ends of the strings, as well as two lock screws in order to secure is tightly, 180 Gordon Drive, Suite 111Exton PA [email protected](888) 583-8880, Use left/right arrows to navigate the slideshow or swipe left/right if using a mobile device, Genuine Schaller Hannes 6-String Fixed Bridge, Chrome, Made in Germany. The bridge unit vibratory mass has been minimized. Choosing a selection results in a full page refresh. Roland Hannes partners with Schaller-Electronics to bring the guitarworld new innovations.. The advantage of this system over those where all of the vibrating strings share a common carrier, is obvious: If the strings are in a common carrier, then each of the individual vibrations is subject to the physical influence of the other vibrating strings in the group, thus compromising their harmonious response. Roller bridge saddles reliably minimize string breakage while maintaining intonation and tuning stability. In this context, if you consider the classic string instrument construction which has been based for centuries on the ideal vibration coupling of string and body, the generous dimensions of the contact surface between the bridge and the top makes sense. The Hannes® bridge by Schaller is a splendid fusion of innovation and tone. By far the most comfortable bridge on the market, impresses with detailed highs, fast attack and a well-defined, powerful and harmonic sound. Therefore, these types of small transfer surfaces are also known as “micro-coupling”. All products are direct from Schaller in Germany and are in original factory packaging.
