“With electric guitar and bass bridges it’s all about tone…how to
get more tone, more stability, more sustain and finer
adjustments…without adding weight. This is really what Full Contact
Hardware is all about.” – Jeff Babicz
The 'Full Contact Hardware'
system now offers "full contact" between the vibrating string and the
body of the instrument. Babicz designed FCH with the intent of gaining
the maximum amount of direct string coupling to the body of the
instrument, with over 50 times more contact surface per saddle compared
to conventional saddle designs.
With FCH, string height or
"action" can now be set with more precision. The "eCam” saddle allows
for instant "action" adjustments without ever adding space or air gaps
between the saddle and the body of the guitar, and conventional string
height action adjustment set screws are eliminated. With the Babicz FCH
design, the bridge saddle can never "sink" or "shift" while playing.
Each FCH eCAM saddle also includes a specially designed “String Height
Lock” feature, which keeps your string height setting in place…even
during extreme saddle vibrations over time. Precise intonation
adjustments are also easily attained and in most cases include a
“Saddle Housing Lock” feature. For more info, click here.
