What is TUSQ made of?Updated 13 days ago

TUSQ is a proprietary material crafted through a precision-engineered process involving high heat and pressure. It is composed entirely of 100% organic polymers, with no petroleum or animal by-products. This unique formulation ensures optimal frequencies and transfer rates to your guitar consistently. Unlike bone, which can have grains and produce dead spots and inconsistencies, TUSQ is uniform in its composition, ensuring rich tone and harmonic content across every piece and within every piece. When designing our materials, factors like hardness, modulus of elasticity, and internal damping all contribute to the musicality of TUSQ.
