Here is the common guide to selecting the correct adapter for your instrument. The process is easy, and essentially all you need to know if what instrument you have weather it is a bass or electric guitar and how many strings it has.
(1) First choose your model.
- 4-string bass 1-1/2″ (38mm)…….fits Steinberger (Newburgh-era, Spirit, USA) — Hohner — Cort
- 5-string bass 1-1/2″ (38mm)…….fits earlier Steinberger Newburgh-era L2 with narrow nut or conversion kit
- 5-string bass 1-3/4″ (45mm)…….fits later Steinberger (Newburgh-era, Spirit, USA) — Hohner — Cort
- 6-string guitar 1-5/8″ (41mm)……fits Steinberger (Newburgh-era, Spirit, USA) — Hohner — Cort
(2) Then choose your material.
- Aluminum….. silver colored lightweight metal won’t change tonal balance of your instrument.
- Brass……….. gold colored heavyweight metal which some folks say adds to sustain.
String adapters are easy to use, and easy to install. Looking at the image on the right, you
can see the adapter by itself and the an adapter that has been successfully installed onto a Steinberger headless instrument.
A simple way to install an adapter is to take all the strings off your instrument and thread the new strings through the adapter. Use the string tension to hold the adapter into place. This simple process will take no more time that a normal string replacement job. Simple, easy and the adapter will last forever too!
Yes! We will ship anywhere! For less than $6 we will ship our headless guitar string adapters anywhere you play! Here is a complete list of countries we serve:
String adapters are inexpensive, simple to use and easy to carry everywhere. Even those that swear by double ball end strings are still keeping an adapter on hand. That way in the odd case that they are traveling and a string breaks they have the option of using any set of standard single ball end strings that they want. Just nice to have that backing you up, because even if you don’t it is nice to know you could.
